Just a little something to show my fellow admins some appreciation. The sentiment says "so glad we're here for each other".
There are 18 of us throughout the district - in the schools, the board office, transportation, and student and instructional services. It's a pretty good network of support for one another as well as the school system.
I was glad to find a couple of packages of this dsp in my stash and the instructions for this cute folded paper box here from Tiffany Bauer of My Crafty World. One note - if you follow her great instructions, instead of marking your paper at 2" and 11", I think it should be 2" and 9" which worked out perfectly. This is easy and was just big enough to hold a snack pack of Pepperidge Farm goldfish crackers, a single serve of Wylers Iced Tea w/Lemonade (to add to a bottle of water), a Lindor Truffle, and an animal shaped bag clip for some whimsy.
My daughter works in a school and she told me that she needed to send a fax last week and she couldn't remember how exactly to do it so she sheepishly asked one of the secretaries for help. I say sheepishly because she had asked before and gotten directions but hadn't remembered the process and she knew that this could be a little frustrating for the office staff. The secretary remembered this, of course, and heaved a little sigh and made a little comment about it's funny that teachers have such a hard time remembering these things. Rachel told her "I know. My mom works in a school office and she's always telling me how forgetful teachers are. (She didn't quite use the words that I used.) She says it's quite a problem." And this sent the secretary into hysterics.
I reminded her of what today was and she told me not to worry, that she already had it taken care of!
