Welcome to Friday Fragments, the perfect post for unloading your muddled mind before enjoying an empty-headed weekend! I've got plenty for you this week-Thanks for stopping by. (Please click on the tab above to learn more.)
***Free/Family/Fun Fragment: Tonight, my Difference Makers and I volunteered at a "moonlight" snowshoe/cross-country ski event at one of our district's grade schools. It was organized by a few dedicated teachers who just wanted to encourage families to do something fun together. Everyone had a lot of fun, and the weather was beautiful. I just love my school district; it's a gem, I tell you.
***Kendall's in her high school's musical this weekend. (She's a wife in The King and I.) We're taking the grandmas to the show tomorrow night. It should be nice, but my favorite part will be not staying after school to pick Kendall up after rehearsals :) Next up: Solo & Ensemble, which I LOVE.
***Before we went to the snowshoe event (it didn't start until 6pm), the Difference Makers kids made a huge banner that reads, "Teach and You Touch a Life Forever." The students plan to hand out pastel-colored paper hearts on which they will ask kids to write message about teachers who have made a difference in their lives. They'll put the hearts on the banner and hang it in the lunchroom. Nice, huh?
***An incredibly wonderful thing happened to me this morning, but it's too wonderful for a tiny little fragment, so I plan to write about it Monday. Sorry, you'll have to remain in suspense.
***Another excellent thing that happened to me this week came in the form of a critical email I received from someone I barely know. I had called him out for being insensitive when he sent a teacher-bashing email to his entire address book without thinking about who he might be sending it to. (He didn't realize I'm a teacher.) He replied with a close-minded rant and followed it up with this message, in it's very own email:
"I really don't like mispellings. I mispelled personally in my email. You mispelled judgment and acknowledgement. You might want to use SpellCheck before sending emails."
Do you see why I found this criticism amusing? I replied with,
"LOL, Steve!! It's misspell, but don't worry; I know plenty of very smart people who don't use spellcheck on their emails. Those two get me every time! :)" He didn't reply.haha
Okay, that's enough from me! Link up your own fragments below, and have a fragtastic weekend :)
