Write every day in March!
"Do we get to wear shorts?"
"Will it be hot next week?"
"Will I be in 3rd grade when we come back?"
"When is my birthday?"
"Nine days without homework!"
"It's not a vacation if I'm not going anywhere."
The hardest reaction to hear were four simple words, "I will miss you." My heart aches for the kids who look forward to school because it's the most predictable and calm part of their day. Students know the grownups at school care about them. We are a sea of friendly faces, even if students make poor choices.
I'll miss their shining faces for a week, but I'm glad for the chance to recharge my enthusiasm for the remainder of the school year.
