Wow! It is April 1st and finally appears that winter is moving on. It was sixty degrees yesterday and should be a carbon copy today. I am joining with Farley for April's Currently.

After chatty kids yesterday and today, the silence is welcomed! The kids are as anxious for warm weather as I am. The snow has finally melted and we can get outside to walk. 

The marking period has ended. We have conferences after we get back from break. I have to have my grades entered before I leave on Friday. I better get busy because I want to roll with the buses. I am needing a break from school. Camp and our Wax Museum have taken their toll on me. I am battling a losing battle with laryngitis along with a cold.

My day is 7:30 to about 3:10. Kids come down to rooms at 7:37. Class starts at 7:45. We dismiss to music at 2:52. We can leave ten minutes after the buses. We had to add ten days, the state forgives six by our contract. We were hoping they would give us more calamity days like Ohio just voted in, but no such luck. We added one day, by having students come half a day on our conference day on April 17. The rest will be added to the end of the year. I hope we can keep kids focused that long!

Don't forget to link up with Farley. 


  1. Sixteen snow days??? We had five here in SE Wisconsin and that is the most I can ever remember. Did you get a spring break? I heard a lot of school districts were canceling spring break to make up for snow days.

  2. I have a cold too. Booooo! Hate getting sick this time of year. I am taking the day off today to get better. I hope you feel better soon!


  3. I hope you feel better soon! It is always so crummy to get sick when the weather starts to warm up. We hit 59 here today and it is so nice compared to what we've had!

    Enjoy the silence :) I'm so jealous (with 3 year-old twins and a newborn I think I've forgotten what silence sounds like--haha!)
