Posting on a blog

I have every intent in trying to post this week -- the last week before school is out is a bit harried and my mind and body are spent at the end of the day. So when I have tried to blog, my mind has gone blank.

Sad news... our school was broken into and vandalized... it turns a school upside down mentally, physically, and emotionally, especially during a week that elementary aged children are hyped up before the holidays. Police were at the school all morning and children could not get into their rooms for some time yesterday (thank goodness my little ones were given permission to go to our rooms - they never know quite what to do with my crew.) I don't understand why someone(s) would want to create the havoc and chaos that they did. Makes my heart so sad as our elementary school has become surrounded by a questionable neighborhood - can't stay too long after school unless others are there. Never would have thought our small town would have that as a part of their community, but it's here.

Pray for those of us that are still teaching that the next several days will go smoothly and no more crises(sp) will occur.
Gotta scoot, school starts soon.

I'm so sorry to hear about your school. I taught elementary school for several years and always found the week or so before Christmas to be hard enough on the kids without the kind of trouble you all had. God bless you and your students.

I'm so sorry (and shocked) to hear about your school. I pray for the teachers and the children (and the parents).
