The day was fine, but our assembly didn’t go as it should have! I have to show you the trees on my walk to school this morning!
Today we did a self assessment for the report card and we wrote to veterans with our buddies.
In between we had our school Remembrance Day assembly. My family has always taken Remembrance Day seriously and I teach to it a lot in my classroom. The grade 1s and 2s recited a poem beautifully at the assembly.
Little Poppy given to me
Help me keep Canada safe and free
I’ll wear a little Poppy, as red as can be
To show that I remember those who fought for me.
However, students ran the assembly with absolutely no practice beforehand. The principal didn’t address what the moment of silence was for and didn’t even have the students stand! There was not even the last post played! This was very different from the previous few years where the ceremony was beautifully put together.
There has to be some sort of middle ground between micromanaging and doing as little as possible!!
I came home, grabbed a spoonful of peanut butter and headed out for my run. I managed to very easily get 5.4 km done, though I had to loop back around the block at the end as I was only at 4.11km and needed 5.3. The run felt good today:)
After warming up, I grabbed my mom and headed to Costco. I got my rotisserie chicken, some toiletries and some scent boost that Maureen had recommended. I got to try it out as soon as I got home too as I got chicken on my jacket:(
Well I’m off to bed!
