Parent Teacher Conferences.
That is a big part of my week this week. I really enjoy conferences. It's nice to get some background on your students and it's just a different type of week. WE do conferences for four hours on Monday evening and Tuesday evening (those 8 hours earn us a day off on Friday) and regular school hours on Thursday. So we have students for 3 days and the students get a five day weekend for Columbus Day. That is probably plenty of time to celebrate the great holiday.
After dominating Homecoming our next big event is coming up only days later for Fort StuCo. We are hosting our district convention here on Friday while there are no classes. It's plenty of work and a lot of fun. Following that convention there is an advisors workshop at The Lake on Sunday and Monday. This is one of my favorite workshops where people get new ideas and networks...... and if you play your cards right you can find your future wife there. Pam and I met at this workshop 3 years ago. YAY! Oh what a difference 3 years makes.
Have a great week!
