Oooh…I wasn’t going to complain about the weather! But REALLY….it is either way way below zero or snowing at Sweetwater! Seriously….school has been cancelled for COLD 3 days in January….and the rumor is that on Monday there is a chance we will make it 4 days!
Before I get to the Wall Art project, I thought you might enjoy this little parody that was posted on Facebook by an alum of our school! The time stamp on it means that she whipped this up in less than 15 minutes!!! Guess we are pretty good educators….and her talent is amazing. Enjoy!
Twas the night before day two of finals, when all through the town
The high-schoolers were studying, not making a sound.
The Facebook chat bar was absent of dots of green,
Since one must prioritize when one is a teen.
Their younger siblings watched them, filled with fears,
For that would be them in a few short years.
Then mamma dragged the kids away and put them in bed,
because her normally sane teen is not currently right in the head
When out in the kitchen I heard the telephone ring
I sprang from my seat to go answer the thing.
Away from my desk (dungeon) I flew like a flash
And into the kitchen I promptly dashed
I heard on the phone a voice familiar to me
The automated voice message system of the city of SLP
The computer-lady then said a phrase that relieved all my sorrow:
“For grades K thru 12 there is no school tomorrow”
Upon realizing the meaning of her words, I released all my dread
I was so sleep deprived, I could soon rest my poor head
More rapid than eagles the Facebook posts came,
And they all whistled and shouted and I did the same!
Here are a couple of wrapped fabric wall pieces from the past….
Lots of impact for very little effort and money…
