We had an assembly today with Ms. Washington's brother. It was a bullying assembly and was different. He talked about the climate of the school and how the students can change it to make it a more positive environment. He also helped the students understand that the teachers are not the problem in the building, it's the way the kids treat each other. It was refreshing!
I took an observation day and went to the Middle School Computer Fair. There were so many great projects there. This one was one of my favorites for the logo contest. The only problem is that it must adhere to the 3x3 rule which it did not. It looks awesome though.
Mark and I went to Jo Jo's Java Joint in Ambler where we had a PAECT meet and greet. The president and vice president were in attendance there. I learned some new stuff and got to share my projects using Glogster EDU. The food was incredible!
Maybe there is hope for my kids yet. We went out into the rainy night and Rachel put her arm around Jonathan as he shared his umbrella with her. There was no fighting involved and no one asked him to do it. This was truly a moment that made my heart smile.
This is what I came back to after being out of work, sick, for two days. It seems that a student dropped a laptop on top of another cracking the screen. I am so upset. These computers are not even a year old yet and with the budget cuts we have no money to fix it.
Took the dog out for a walk and my husband brought a kite to fly with the kids. There was a nice breeze and the kite had no problems getting up into the air. It was controlling it that was the problem.
Today was the karaoke party for my twins. I had 25 screaming 9 - 11 year olds in my house along with a DJ who projected the words on my wall. I now have proof that my twins can do something together without fighting!
I know that it's April Fool's Day. I have been sick all day in bed and it was snowing this morning. Since I wasn't feeling well I started to drink lots of water. My husband brought home these Mio Liquids in many different flavors. They are delicious. I have tried all of these flavors and the sweet tea is my favorite.
