Welcome friends! I’ll start the day with some thoughts and reflection. Friday, we were invited to our middle school where our granddaughter was receiving, along with a number of other 8th graders, the Presidential Scholarship Award for maintaining all A’s throughout her three years in middle school. She has had a rough year this year and we are so very proud of all of her accomplishments, especially maintaining her grades. She has some wonderful teachers and the principal is awesome!! So we arrived at the auditorium and were waiting for our daughter who had a client in another part of the school before she could walk over to join us. She arrived and we were sitting and chatting, waiting for the ceremony to begin and suddenly we see the emergency lights start flashing and the principal running up the aisle past us and other teachers in the auditorium were closing all the doors. I’m thinking, OK, it’s not a fire or they would be having us exit as we were right by an outside door. An announcement came over the PA system that we were in lock down! So we sat in the dark for about 15 minutes until we got the all clear. A teacher was having a discipline problem, and accidentally hit the “button” on the ID badge that indicates a problem, too many times. Our daughter said that there were different numbers of codes “pushes” for different scenarios. Thankfully, there was no intruder just a rowdy student and a button pressed too many times. My thought process in all of this is that it is sad our world has come to a state where our students and teachers have to deal with something like this. OK. Off my soapbox. Let’s move on to more fun things. Here are some pics of her with the award as well as her dance recital.
