The Principal Chronicles continue ... As I write this, it is Wednesday morning. The sun is shining, the Broncos won (though I didn't watch the game, who can stay up that late on a school night?), and for the most part, things are running pretty smoothly (although I may have just jinxed it).
On my way to school through the giant construction zone known as C-470 this morning, I had a small freak out moment realizing how many things I need to get done in the next two weeks. Especially next week. I'm out of the building a bunch this week and there are many projects that I have started working on that need to be finished. I am a very goal-driven person and I like to make sure I do what I say I am going to do. The problem is, I opened my big mouth and said I would teach a class for our teacher in-service day next week without looking at how busy I am that week. Next week we have our SAC meeting, Outdoor Ed, AND our professional development day. Holy Cow I am stacked that week. Not only that but Renee's birthday is so I have to plan that as well.
Luckily for me, all she wants to do is go to a restaurant by our house called the Flying Pig. It's basically a burger place where she wants to have a burger with cheese, bacon, mushrooms, and about 100 grams of fat. Last time we were there, I couldn't find a single healthy thing on the menu (hence the name flying pig). I know what you're thinking, "Why don't you live a little, why don't you just eat a burger". Essentially if I dropped a burger from that place into my system, I'd be adding more fat, salt and red meat than I have had in months. I would most likely be so sick to my stomach I'd seize up. At the same time, I think it's blasphemy to bring other food into a restaurant or just not eat. I have no idea how I'm going to solve this one. Maybe they allow dogs and I can sneak my food to George.
Well enough rambling, I need to actually get some work done here at CTE and spend some time with our kids. I've been in and out so much this week I miss them (side note: I've been in so many meetings that the other day I only took 3K steps throughout the day. How sad is that? I could fall down the stairs and get more than 3K steps).
That's it for this week, stay tuned for next weeks episode when I travel to Outdoor Ed which is always an event for great stories. Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continues....
Stallion Battalion: The Stallion Battalion has started their first project - the Maker Space! If you have craft supplies, cardboard, paper towel tubes, egg cartons, small pieces of wood, and anything else you can think of that would be good for creating, drop it off at CTE. There will be a donation box near the entrance. Also, if you know if a business who may be interested in sponsoring this space to help bring it to life for our students, please let Derek Spohn know.
Fun Run: The Annual Fun Run is coming Tuesday, Sept. 26th! This is our one big fundraiser this year! The run itself will be during specials and all parents are welcome to come and support their students. Next Monday, Sept. 18th is the Fun Run Assembly. Students will hear what they are raising funds for and what fun prizes they can earn individually and as a class. The day of the run we are always in need of some helping hands, so if you plan to attend the Fun Run, please consider signing up to mark laps or help tally laps for your child's grade.
September is Suicide Prevention month - link to info about how to help.
