Every Friday Ms. Larsen's does something called "Flashlight Friday."  They turn off the lights and read with flashlights.  It is a BLAST!

Why?

Why will kids ask ten times when recess is but then want to stay in for the whole break to organize markers?

Why do kids forget where to indent in a letter but remember the name of my guinea pig I had when I was in the third grade, and why my dad washed my mouth out with soap when I was eight?

Why do kids write “THE END” so big?

Why do kids know precisely how many days, hours, and minutes are left till their birthdays but still ask, “When’s lunch?”

Amazing Talent!

It is the time of year teachers need to put on their hardhats, tie yellow caution tape across their doors, and lay out orange cones in the halls.  They will need to stand guard at the garbage cans, handing back papers that forgot where the ‘finished’ work basket is.

This week is Riverview Elementary Teacher Appreciation Week.   I truly appreciate our teachers!

Our teachers take slivers out of fingers and bad sports out of kick ball.  They know when a child has gum in his mouth even when he is not chewing.  They have sung “Happy Birthday” 657 times.

They hand over scissors with the handles up.  They can listen to one child talk about his birthday party and another talk about her sleepover and another talk about getting stitches last night-all at the same time.

“Ask not what your secretary can do for you, but what you can do for your secretary!”

It’s funny how principals think they are in charge, but everyone knows that the people who really run a school are the secretaries.  If you have questions, ask the secretary.  If you lose something, see the secretary.  If the copier is jammed, get the secretary.  If a child throws up, send her to the secretary.
