Saturday School and Loving It

Well, after a million and a half snow days, today we paid the price. Yes, we're in school on Saturday. And it feels different. For some reason, today is just a little more relaxed. It seems like the pace is a little slower, and people are talking more. Students this morning seemed a little extra friendly. The discussion had a bit more of an edge or alertness, with everyone involved. And really, there hasn't been much complaining. As Mrs. Stevenson said, "you know, it really hasn't been that bad."

There are some students that missed due to prior commitments. Scotty is at the state wrestling meet (good luck and bring home the gold). A few students skipped out. One parent told a teacher, "Saturday is kid's day, and kid's shouldn't have to work." What kind of a load of crap is that? What about the ten school days that his kid missed during the bad weather?

Overall today has been quite a success. Students are working hard and learning in Language Arts Workshop. People seem to be smiling. Most everyone here wants to be here. The sun is shining in Laurelville. Who would believe it, Saturday school and loving it. Maybe we should do this more often. . . .NNNNAAAHHH!

I would hate it if we had to go to school another saturday but if we get three recess like we did today I'd probably come anyway!

I think summer school is a better alternative than attending later into the spring when it is about a million degrees in the Laurelville buildings with no climate control! The only set back that I see is the goofy custody messes such as affected our family. My daughter was at her father's house for a weekend visit and he could not get her to school as he lives in Chillicothe. Everything has its ups and downs!

No fair I want three recess too. I am definitely coming this sat. That sounds so fun. I think that sat school is waay better than coming in the summer.

I really hated the Sat. School. I would rather go to school a few more days in the summer.Even though there were a lot of kids at school I don't think they were very happy about it.It's more like Sat. School and hating it.Sorry but it's kind of true. I'm suggesting that all of the 6th grade Teachers will take us all outside and do something fun and educational. (But mostly fun)

"Saturday school and not lovin' it" Mr. McGuire I think that over half of us would have rather been at home. Riding dirt bikes/4-wheelers because I know I did. Also we have to do it again this saturday...boo..T he weekend before my birthday too. That is gonna be a downer!
I hated everything, but the pop and chips. LOL. I wouldn't mind having to go a few days in the summer, but I know my sister doesn't want to go to school AFTER SHE GRADUATES !!
