That stands for “Thank God Friday is Over.” Here’s a brief recap:
– confiscated 2 cell phones and one iPod from students during classes
– confiscated on lacrosse stick being swung at Student B by Student A as Student A chased Student B across the playing field. Student A then bugged me all day about when would he get his stick back because he needed it for lacrosse practice that afternoon.
– spent the last 10 minutes of one class period with everyone sitting in silence, doing nothing because they were that ridiculous
– made two students cry
– closed down the middle school play (big woo hoo on being done with that!)
The day was not a total loss. I had an eighth grade class that was exceptionally cooperative, like “I don’t recognize these students because they are so well behaved.” It was a little surreal. A student with whom I had a particularly ugly confrontation wrote the sweetest, most heartfelt letter of apology. No one told her to do it. I almost cried.
