The Mangus Messenger
This week was the perfect time to pull an April Fool's prank on the kids. I borrowed the Kinder chairs and you should have seen their faces. It was great watching them sit at their tall tables in those little mini chairs.
The best part was the added bonus of having our Kinder buddies walk into a room with no chairs. Talk about chaos! They were all sitting on the floor, when we came to return their chairs, and seemed happy to have them back. HA!
April Fools Day!!!

There is an amazing quote from the movie When the Game Stands Tall:
"Nobody here expects you to play perfect... But what we do expect, and you should expect from yourself and each other, is a perfect effort."
Don't let them let think we expect them to be perfect, not for a single second. No one is perfect and it's just a test! However, it is important that they give their best effort.
Thank you for your help in reducing the anxiety they are feeling. ;)
