Day one has come and gone. And I must say, I don’t have anything crazy to report. For the most part, everything went fairly smoothly (in perspective, of course). The hardest part was that our ribbon cutting ceremony happened much earlier and went by much more quickly than planned, leaving me with over an hour and a half of homeroom time to fill. Thank God for what I learned at Summer Bridge!
To a large extent, it look like these first couple weeks will be a bit of a replay of the Summer Bridge experience. A lot of my new kids are still in that wide-eyed phase. I’m a bit concerned that my Bridge kids aren’t really setting the tone the way they should be. Instead of being positive leaders, a lot of them are feeling entirely too comfortable goofing off. Now that the expectations have been shared with everyone, tomorrow is enforcement day.
