BIG NEWS! I'm officially going to be a Falcon next year. I've been 90% sure about this for awhile but today I had my interview with my new principal. Because of student population growth, our school is essentially being split between two buildings next year. That's difficult because coworkers are being split up, our 7th graders are being split up and a whole lot of things will change. It's exciting because it's a fresh start with a new building (well, old building, but new name), new culture and so much potential. After 6 years as an HSE Jr High Panther I will become a Fall Creek Jr High Falcon. Now I'll just have to find a moving crew to help me switch classrooms this summer.
One of the most precious parts of my interview was when the new principal told me she had an email from a mom who couldn't decided which school to send her daughter to next year. The mom was trying to figure out which school would offer Friendship Bracelet Club because her daughter enjoys it so much. PEOPLE WANT TO PICK A SCHOOL BASED ON FBC. OH MY I LOVE IT.
p.s. National FBC Day is just over a week away. Get your string ready for Thursday, March 26th people.
The highlight of my night was a dinner date with Cami, an 8th grade Wyld Life girl. I love that she loves getting together to talk about life, friends, school, camp, Spring Break and everything in between. We had a great talk on the way home about being excited for things. She told me that she's been trying to only worry about stuff that matters instead of getting caught up in drama or adding to negativity. "It's just not worth it."
In honor of Tecumseh Tuesday...
