Next week our school is celebrating their annual spring week. We do different activities throughout the week and have dress up days each day. Friday is our annual community service day in which our students fan out throughout the town. Some students choose to take the day off because they’re too good to work for free or something. The rest of the school does a lot and I have some great memories of the jobs students have done in the past. Some of our students are such hard workers that I bragged about them for years. At the end of the morning of work we have a school barbecue and we all eat together. Tickets that were given all day to the harder workers are entered in a raffle and students that are drawn get various prizes. I’ve always thought it is such a great way to start a spring break! Sure the day doesn’t go without a couple of hitches but overall it’s a great experience.
So I’m looking forward to our Spring Week and I’ll enjoy a week off afterwards. Then its on to the home stretch.
