The school year is over and summer is here. So that means the rush, rush of cleaning a classroom so the custodians can get in and do their thing. I never seem to be able to do that as well as I'd like or as quickly as they'd like. Alas, today I finished up even if it did mean just getting some stuff out of their way without really taking time to sort through it and get organized the way I wanted to. Now it's on to the beginning of summer and planning for our 1st science camp. I've had 3 students register so far. Some of my colleagues have volunteered to help out and it's time to start making definitive plans for how we will spend our time.
On a side note, I had a visit from our district "Green Schools" intern along with some ladies from Ft. Bragg today. One of them was a parent of a former student which was a delightful surprise! Even better was the offer from our intern to come back by and drop off 2 watermelon plants for our student garden. They have the cutest baby watermelons on them and I hope they do well.
Last but not least, I finally remembered to return a phone call to the soil & water dept. and make arrangements for our 6 new rain barrels to be dropped off next week. Next decision... where are the best locations for reclaiming water on our campus.
