Because of two nights of conferences this week, we have Friday off as a compensation day. Monday is President's Day and we have that off too. Hallelujah! A four day weekend. Time to relax and enjoy.
As I left about 6:00pm after rehearsals with some of my speech kids, I met a student coming down the hall. A student I have been working with off and on all year. He has lots going on in his life and school and homework are not at the top of his list of things to do.. He's failing several classes and he's much too smart to fail anything. I check with him every day about work he has to do. Work he's missing. What he's going to work on in study hall. I nag him.
"Hey. What are you doing back?" I laughingly ask.
A small grin appears on his face.
"I came back to get the stuff for my science poster so I can get it done this weekend."
I'm still smiling.
