Last week, we missed 3 days of school because of excessive cold and snow.
We’re literally covered and freezing. I ventured into Downtown Boston on Friday, and the city is still beautiful as ever.
But the first week of 2018 has been mostly spent inside, huddled for warmth.
I have to admit, I’m excited to go back to school! Sure, it’s nice to spend the day in pajamas, but I love what I do. Before winter vacation, it was beautiful to watch my students learning about other cultures by visiting houses of worship.
Check out this experience, when a student asked the Imam at the mosque if they could hear the Muslim call to prayer. The students were silent as they listened:
I get to spend my days with a bunch of thoughtful, creative, generous young people. Before break, my advisory participated in a Yankee Swap of homemade items, and it was so great to see what everyone came up with! These are just a few of the gifts that the kids made:
So, yeah, snow days are exciting, who else is excited to go back to school tomorrow?
