So I tried to enjoy my well-rested self in a quiet house for a couple hours before heading to school for the principal's Opening Meeting. I had a few loose ends and small tasks to address:
- Revising and preparing the chaperone packet for the field trip we'll take on the 20th, which is two weeks earlier than usual. I started the list of jobs like "make the student groups", "collect cell phone #s from new staff", "decide who gets the medication bags." All the little things that go into a field trip.
- Updating my school-hosted website, which I rarely utilize because my students get assignments and notices through Schoology. However, it is the first online introduction for many parents, so I took 15 minutes to spruce it up. I added this video which I made two summers ago. Not terrific, but a decent introduction to my class.
