*Didn't know I wasn't picking up one of the kids in the carpool until I got there (though I did suspect it) and no one was home. (note- don't have your girl friend pretend to be your mom and excuse you from class when your mom's friend is the one that answers the phone at the school- you will be marked sluffing and have to go to early morning attendance school)
*Had to sub in Health class, 80% boys. Topic to be taught? STDs, complete with pictures in the power point lesson plan.
*Today was the end of third term at school. Crazy busy in the office with parents trying to excuse every. single. absence for the entire term. No happy parents when I tell them that their child still needs to attend attendance school because even with the excuses, their student has not met the attendance policy.
*Met with students about missing credit for graduation and gave them options to complete in the next 8 weeks in order to be able to graduate. (note- keep track of your student's grades/attendance/credit tally. Don't wait until the last minute because I can promise you for every student I meet with, there are 2-3 that I haven't identified as needing my attention.)
*Typed up tentative agenda for Student Support Team meeting on Monday. Sent it to the assistant principal
*Met with said assistant principal regarding agenda. Added new items to agenda. Sent agenda to all team members so they will have it Monday in time for the meeting.
*Turned off computer, answered a few more phone calls (had to use Shelly's computer to look up students)
*Thought about everything I needed to do before I leave for my nephew's wedding reception this evening
*And the best part of the whole day? Donovan called me and told me they are on the way to the hospital for the baby to be born. I may not go to the reception after all.
