What With Today's Job Market and All

Today we filled in the BizTown jobs as teachers with input from the parents who interviewed your kids last Friday. This was no easy task. All of the kids wanted about half a dozen jobs, and we have roughly 90 fifth graders. Therefor, very very few people got their first pick, or really even any of their top three picks. We had very few people go for the CFO positions, for instance, and there were many of those spots to fill.

That's the bad news.

The good news, however, is that all of the positions give the kids a fun time and everyone gets to have a great learning experience.

Assuming everyone can come in very quietly tomorrow, take out their Word of the Day, and do their attendance, I will reveal the positions before we go to Art class. (Or, if we run out of time, right when they get back.)

We also got to hear the speeches given by our Student Council candidates. It was a lot of fun hearing them all and having each child vote. I have tabulated the votes, but I still need to run them by Mrs. Shearman for approval. I should be able to get that information to the kids tomorrow as well, barring any unforeseen circumstances. 

In Math today, we graded our study guide for tomorrow's big test. Everyone should be ready to go on this one. Tomorrow will be our last day with only thirteen students in Math, as we are gaining eight new students on Thursday--fourth graders who are in Advanced Math.

I hope everyone is having a great week.
