How cool is this? I got my final schedule of classes, a full six days before school starts. Not bad:
1st per. – 7th/8th choir
2nd per. – 6th choir
3rd per. – Black & Gold
4th per. – Music theory
5th per. – Lunch
6th per. – HS choir
7th per. – Tech
8th per. – 5th grade
9th per. – Prep
I think putting morning announcements on the district site at 1:30 p.m. is not ideal, but it’ll all work out. That’s what lunch at your desk is for, right? And something totally new this year (this will interest you, Bando): I no longer share a period with any band at any level. How awesome is that? Good for Abe and the bandies, too. Had to give up 5th choir for it, but that’s OK. I’ll endeavor to make singers out of ’em anyhow, like I did in the early days.
Only bad part of this schedule? No more lunches with my awesome fiends Wendell, Stoney and Abe.
Today I am off to the school house to meet with the guy who installed the fantastic new mixer board and speakers in my classroom. We scheduled the training session for closer to school time so this old dino-bot could retain a bit more information. After that, I print out, fold and stuff 150 letters that will be mailed home to parents, and try to stop by to meet my new super and new middle school principal. Definitely not a stressful day: a good way to begin.
Hey. I thought today was Thursday.
