This was our last four day week before the end of the year. Thursday, the last day for UPS to pick up our testing data, the driver didn't pick up the box so I had to call and make additional arrangements for it to be picked up on Friday. Thankfully, our supt. secretary was working that day so no one had to make a special trip in to school. I just had to leave a big sign on the door to direct the UPS driver to the other office. Thursday night was our awards banquet for grades 7-12. Students who were on the principal's or superintendent's honor roll during the school year were invited with their parents or others to attend, eat and receive a medal with certificate for all their hard work. I stayed after school to get some much needed work completed inbetween school and the banquet. Since we (and several other schools in the area) were out on Friday, me and a friend decided to take one more little trip to help us get through the last few days of the school year which are always so hectic. (LOL) Together we drove down to Frisco, TX for lots of laughs, good food and shopping (IKEA and The Container Store were the most imporant, but we also hit up lots of nation wide chain stores and the mall). There's nothing like two worn out educators together at the end of the year finding even the simplest, ordinary things so incredibly funny to the point we were laughing almost the whole time. Going on these little trips by ourselves is always so much fun, too, because we stop when we want, as often as we want, where we want and stay as long as we want (as opposed to traveling with our husbands who hurry and get there ten hurry to get back). This week coming will wrap up our spring tests with all the students who missed the regularly scheduled test sessions. Due to baseball games, speech contests, FFA conventions and several other things we had qite a few students not testing. We'll be testing every day this week, two sessions each day, Tuesday through Friday. Monday, I need to get everything ready to mail so I'll be a little ahead of the game. That leaves one more week with students which for me will be full each evening as well. I'll teach a cake class Monday night, help with 8th grade graduation Tues. night, Wed. night is church, Thurs. night is 7-12th regular awards and Fri. night is senior graduation. I'm still gearing my brain up for that week! :)
