Skip off to catch the bus,
Ready to roll
Shuffle their way home,
Ready to collapse
On the couch

Yes? Didn’t you feel that way as a kid? The first day of school’s excitement could hardly be contained!
But by Friday, nay Wednesday for some, everyone is drooping a bit as the demands of the routine become a little less glorious and a lot more realistic. It’s a big week- for kids and teachers alike.
Wishing all you students, teachers, administrators, bus drivers, secretaries, librarians, cafeteria staff, janitorial and maintenance staff, instructional aides, and “yard duties” (worst title ever invented- God bless you out there on the playground) a restful two days off.
And, can we renew our commitment to infusing each and every school day with some joy, some laughter, and some affirmation of those around us? These don’t get in the way of learning; they make room for learning.
It’s good for us all to remember: joy’s still available… even when our shoes sport some scuffs.
