Permission Slips

Who put me in charge of the forth grade field trip?  And why didn’t I see the worksheet until a week before we go?

I think I got everything together, figured out who is going in what group, and what teachers are coming and how many parents they are bringing.  But we didn’t get the “second” permission slip.  Our district makes us use one, and the field trip location  requires we fill out theirs.  We didn’t get theirs.  Until yesterday.  So that leaves me today, Friday, and Monday (the day of the field trip) to send home and get back the second permission slip.

I forgot to send it home today.

That means that I have to send them home tomorrow (Friday) and they have to remember to bring them back on Monday.  Good luck!  I’ll be lucky to get half of them.

My plan is to leave the ones I get at school, and just tell them that I left them at school, and hope they think I meant I forgot it.  Or, I’ll just bring the ones I get, and hope they think it’s the entire class’s.

(Not) Halloween

Tomorrow is Friday, the last school day before Halloween.  I was hoping to rally the troops and get teachers to dress up tomorrow for school.  I have my “Lutheran bishop” costume ready.  Amy said she’d be willing.  She’s got an “80’s teenager” outfit ready to go.  Kristin said she’d wear her “Alice in Wonderland” outfit, if others were going to dress up.

But that’s about as far as I got, as far as willing to dress up goes.

Too many people were scared about what the principal would say.  Come on!  What could she say?  Even if she didn’t like it, how mad could she get.  She’s not going to write us all up, or send us all home, or something.  Worse case, she calls us into the conference room and tells us not to do it again.

Totally worth it!

I’m disappointed in my fellow teachers.  Come on, take a chance.  Live a little!  It’s not like we’re all going to be dressing indecently.  It’s just a costume.

Oh well, maybe next year.
