Teachers report to school tomorrow for two days of meetings and rosters and human resources song and dance and fellowship and who knows what else.
Oh, yeah, copying. Because goodness knows we have to give the kids STACKS of paper to get home and get signed and hopefully get back. And that's not counting the huge stacks that came from The District Office and are now laid out in neat piles on tables with signs that say "Teachers Do Not Take Yet!"
So Mrs. Eagle and I, hating lines and being a bit, well, obsessive about Being Prepared, met at school this morning and spent about two hours getting our copies made - before all the other staff members showed up and needed to make their copies. We copied off the new (four page) Science safety Contract (lovely light green color), the Seventh Grade Supply List (bright orange), Student Information Forms (white, how boring), Course Syllabus (cheerful yellow!), Study Guide for our first unit (lavender and the unit is rocks and minerals), and a few more I can't even remember right now. We punched holes, stapled, stacked and now...we are ready.
Tomorrow it begins!
