May Bee Day 23

Maybe I'll stop procrastinating and grade the lit. logs.

I just don't feel like it though.

This is a good idea I had recently. What if, about 4 weeks before school ended, we started incrementally shortening the school day for the kids?

4 weeks left, we work until 2 pm each day.
3 weeks left, we work half days.
2 weeks left, we work until 10:30.
Final week, kids come in for 45 minutes a day.

The teachers would stay and work for the remainder of the days.  That way we wouldn't have to grade papers after school and work on school tasks on the weekends.  This would give us time to grade final projects and get the end of year checklists completed in reasonable time.
We could all start the summer like normal human beings instead of mere shadows of our former selves.

Yes! Maybe I'm procrastinating making an iMovie of takes from the poetry slam.
