What a day!!! It's raining here which we need desperately! Don't know where you are located but the Southeastern portion of the U.S. has been in the midst of a terrible drought for about a year...maybe a little more.
In Social Studies my teammate is teaching about Imperialism. So to that end, we are watching an edited version of "The Last Samuri." This is a great movie and I'm kind of glad to have the opportunity to get some grading done while the kids are watching.
We are also at the end of a schoolwide fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. My homebase has never won the contest so I begged them to bring in money this time...not quite sure how much we've collected, but my Student Council reps are downstairs counting it right now. I really hope we "place."
The step team is going to a competition today. This is a MAJOR accomplishment for these girls! Most of the girls (not all) on the step team are from homes with a low SES. It's fantastic that Mrs. B has sponsored this program for the last few years. She has even turned it into a mentoring program and all the girls have a mentor! How awesome is that??? You ROCK Mrs. B!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
