Staff Meeting

Our school holds staff meetings on the 2nd Thursday of each month. That would be today.

In order to make the staff meetings something to look forward to, each month one department brings snackies. Last month, PE did it up right with hot dogs and hamburgers off the grill! That was a bit more than we usually do, but everyone said that no one would top PE.

Well, that was then, this is now.

Math, being the good procrastinators that we are, always signs up for May, the last staff meeting of the year. I suggested a Cinco de Mayo theme, because I'm all into multiculturalism, but we decided on an ice cream social. Several flavors of ice cream, crushed Oreos, sliced strawberries, crushed nuts, whipped cream, and chocolate and caramel toppings made up the choices.

Today, the comment heard was "I didn't think anyone could top PE, but they did."

See? Staff meetings can be something to look forward to, if you do them right.

(BTW, I didn't think anyone would top PE, either. That was pretty impressive.)

Awww.
We can't do anything with food because our district contracts food services outside the district. We can't even have BAKE SALES. Hey for next year, do a decorate your own Christmas/Winter Holiday cookies.

Great idea! But our department isn't organized enough to be ready in December :)

Thank God I wasn't drinking coffee when I read that.

RWP, what's up with that? Are you upset that I haven't invited you to any of my frequent diversity parties?

And MA, I like your idea :)
