Homecoming is over and things have slowed down a bit, but I have to share some of the fun! It's really a pleasure to go to work...and here's part of the reason....
This is my office. No, really, it is. Not too tough to take, right??
The 2 windows on the far left (as you are looking at the pic) are next to my desk. Our school is located on some historical property and this house is over 100 years old. The Principal's office is upstairs and he can see everything from up there. A local historian sent us the history of this house and a couple of others on the property and we found out that a family with a little girl lived there in the late 1800's. The little girl passed away from an illness and, as was the custom, she was kept in the home for a viewing of sorts. What is now my office, was the main parlor and that is where she was kept. Interesting story...and lots of people have some stories that make us think something is in there with us all the time. **shiver**
This is our Principal and what a good sport he was that entire week! You can see the Homecoming Court behind him, and since we are a K-12 school, they have a boy and girl chosen from grades 1-10 as a part of the Court. The students vote on the 11th and 12th graders to choose the King & Queen.
This is our Varsity Cheer Squad...and Daughter Bailey is the Cheer Coach! Bailey was a cheerleader from the time she was about 8 years old and she loves being a part of this.
Along with choosing the King & Queen, the highlight of the week was the Student/Facuty Basketball Game. The kids loved it...and this gives you an idea of how the staff got involved. It's great to be a part of a small community school. Very different than most schools in this area.
Anyway...I feel really old. :)
