No April showers here. This morning was above zero though; snowing. But there are some signs of spring….
Sign of Spring #1 – This week students in grades 3-12 will participate in the required Alaska state testing. The test booklets have been inventoried, bar codes applied to the cover of each book and answer sheet, and the #2 pencils are all sharpened up. This is the chance for kids to show they’re not left behind; the chance for the school to meet AYP. When we think of all the money spent on testing and the loss of time for art, music, projects… well, let’s not go there; this is a happy blog.
Sign of Spring #2 – Kids have been sledding all winter. Homework for Friday was to bring your sled to school for the afternoon, all-school-sledding activity.
No tears because of injury. No tears because of the cold. Only tears when we had to quit.
Sign of Spring #3 – Time for lighter wear.
