Well, the Longest Week is now complete. Grades have been handed in to Mrs. Wilmore for reporting, the initial wave of college recommendations is written and submitted, and Mr. Burton and I attended our last graduate class at UMW today. Regular blogging should resume again next week.
While we all enjoy our weekend, I’d like you to ponder a few questions, though, if you don’t mind:
- What topics would you particularly like to read about in the coming weeks? For instance, I haven’t written much about day-to-day curriculum matters. Would that be appealing? Or, should I stick to our regular diet of dead jellyfish and tetanus balloons?
- Would you be interested in reading some student-authored posts? (p.s. Any students interested in authoring such posts should come talk to me, or email me, I’d love to talk about the possibilities.)
- MVGS is closed on November 2nd (Tuesday) for a teacher workday. Have you considered the chores fun your child could be completing between the hours of 7:30 and 10:50 a.m.? Parents, that’s 3 hours and 20 minutes of golden labor bonding time. I’m sure your child would be totally excited to get up early and rake leaves hang out with you. Just ask them!
We’ve had two more parents volunteer to chaperone the DC field experience on November 12th. Please let us know if you’d like to join them. Our parent volunteers find attendance at an MVGS field event gives their hair new shine and body, reveals a keen fashion sense, and makes them able to leap tall buildings with a single bound. True story.
Have a great weekend!
