The Challenger Dispatch

The Week after all the weird weeks dealing with weather.....

May we have a full week of school please.....

Come the usual Friday, I'd love to say "Let's all go home early, it's been huge week and we and the kids have worked REALLY hard. We've made some break throughs, faced some unusual difficulties and now we all need rest."

But NOW, just out of the 3rd week of delays, cancellations and early releases, I'm ready to have a REGULAR week of school. Start on time! Keep every minute profitable and work til the last bell.

Please trim your last lesson plans to the most essential components and continue your move forward.

We have WORK to do and despite the damn weather, we'll do what needs to be done!
