The spirit of competition was lively but friendly. Especially with the light-up buzzers.
Then yesterday, the 5th-8th graders took the National Latin Exam. Now we wait for the results to be processed and returned to us. Tomorrow is the school's spring program; next week we have parent-teacher conferences, and I have to prep students for the final exam the following week. It's the time of year that exhausts teachers on every possible level. Last year this time I was developing a terrible case of walking pneumonia... so far, it seems like just garden variety upper respiratory stuff this year for me, and I hope sincerely that it stays that way. The students, of course, are going to be fine. They're much more resilient and capable than their parents may think.
Looking forward to a bit of Spring break in a few more weeks. Maybe I'll even blog about other things than school. In the meantime, the plum tree is blossoming and looking beautiful.
