Swimming anyone??

Everyone was geared up and full of excitement as they made their way back to school after a much deserved Thanksgiving break. Sadly, much to everyones disappointment, we were all greeted by the newly formed swimming pool where the parking lot once was. 


Fortunately the side of the building was clear and students were able to arrive safely. We all began the day as usual... or at least as best we could with all the excitement... I'm not sure about the other students but mine were sure having trouble concentrating on their work.

"Ms. Waddell! The geese are swimming on our playground and the plastic house is floating!"
          -One of my students shouting as they pulled up the blinds to our back windows.

Eventually school was called. After 120 sharpened pencils, the start of 9 acronyms for remembering the planets, and quite a few cold, wet feet, all the kids were on their way home. 

Good luck staying dry!!
