It’s been a busy week. I have been trying to generate as much publicity as possible for our annual open house event next weekend. So far the omens are looking good.
My 5th grade CCD class is turning out to be a pretty good group of kids. They are rowdy and chaotic at times, but they are usually also engaged and involved. It’s been fun so far.
It is interesting to note what names are popular with parents at any given time. In my class of 23 kids born in late 2000 and 2001, I have:
- An Alex, an Alexa and and an Alexis
- Two Aidens, but with different spellings
- Two Joshes
- An Elizabeth and a Liza
And they wonder why I occasionally get their names mixed up.
Some of my former students occasionally stop by to say hello. I want to think it’s because they like me, but it’s probably because I usually give out cookies. This week, one of my students from last year’s class stopped by after class. She was wearing a scoop-neck top and what must have been some kind of push-up bra. I’m sorry, but cleavage on an 11-year old is just wrong. Whatever was that child’s mother thinking?
