I'm a purple-ish girl, so I like it.  My dining room paint color is just a shade or two lighter and I absolutely love it.

@lolakimono     So sorry they just didn't make that early dismissal issue the same across the district.  This wouldn't happen in the local district's because of union contracts.

How dear!

What a good way to remember your mom by baking and planning a family occasion!

My bff in TX is from PA and she refers to herself and her husband the same way! "grandpap!" I think that's so cute!

Merry Christmas to you, too!

I like the sweater @jackthebear

Just a feeling on my part - I think your beloved Mother will be watching you prepare for the holidays and smiling.  My thoughts are with you on this bittersweet day @1 DancinQueen

Things are far from "business as usual"

Just wait as more teachers throw in the towel and parents start screaming (again) about having to stay home and teach their own children!

 

DD and DSIL were truly stumped last year when they had to.

@LTT1   Never really thought about what the GKs call us as that is the same as how we addressed our grandparents.  SW PA has so many German/Italian/Polish/Irish, etc  influence because of immigration to work in the mines and steel mills at one time.  Of course the older grandchildren call me Gam-Gam a lot since they watched Justin Bateman in "Horrible Bosses"!

You might have heard about the "trend" on TikTok to have these monthly viral challenges in schools.

 

December's challenge was school violence and threats to bomb, shoot and stab people.

News to Know for Dec. 17: TikTok school threats; Richmond gun violence;  Another warm December day

 

I am blessed with outside duty for 35 minutes on Fridays, where I am out there with only my cell phone.  Yesterday I did ask for a walkie talkie and they found one for my duty time, but it is ridiculous that this is not standard when one is outdoors like the proverbial sitting duck.  Attendance was low.  Parents chose to keep their kids at home but for teachers we can't stay home or  we will be disciplined for a mass call out.
