Ordered more Stick Dog books. Tom Watson is visiting at the end of May and the kids are eager! We have been  having a lot of after school issues and I spent a lot of time having conversations about behavior with teens, the schools, and parents. Not my favorite thing to do. Fortunately we seem to be over the hump and everybody is ready to behave again.

I am sorry that the students are not behaving. I FREQUENTLY remind my students that I check on how they behave (there is s resource officer at our library as well) and expect to hear nothing but good things about our school. That said, my girls were NOT allowed to go to the library right after school!
