I'm hopping on really quick (before Big Brother - it's being recorded right now but I love to fast forward through the commercials so I can get back to Rachel's tears as soon as absolutely possible) to say that I just had Parent Information Night. Hooray!! It's over! It went really well - 28 out of 31 parents showed. Several parents thanked me for the treat bags--mission accomplished! I was a RIOT and had the parents laughing the entire time.
That's not true. I wish it was. These parents are just like their kids - sweet, respectful, and quiet. I was trying but I think they were afraid to loosen up. Just like their kids. The other day I had to tell my kids that they were SUPPOSED to sing WITH me. True story.
ANYways -- I got lots of volunteers!! And I think they will be quiet volunteers if tonight is any indication. I'm a little bummed because all of my spots for tearing out workbook pages (both Language Arts and Math) are not filled up. And I don't know what these parents are thinking, but I'm certainly not going to be doing that boring and tedious job. I put "Warning: boring and tedious" on the form. BAD IDEA. Note to self:
boring and tedious fun and exciting!
One of you guys asked if you could see my sign up sheets. They are really quite basic. I used to put all sorts of cute clipart but then it looked . . . busy and confusing. So I just simplified it a couple of years ago.
I promise to come back this weekend with a much better freebie. :)
I'm off to watch the Big Brother drama. Grab your lifeboats --- I think Rachel's going to L.O.S.E. it!!!
