Yes it depends on the demographics and goals of your school. My school is a very diverse high school. We started the year by having one of the original Freedom Writers who was at risk, homeless at times who now had a PhD come to speak. He was amazing, inspiring and genuine- not cheesy at all. The kids asked great questions and took him very seriously. Set a great tone for the year!

Firefighters! They bring the truck and talk about safety. They put on their gear and talk about how they aren’t from outer space. If the kids see them they should not be scared of their protective gear. 👨🏽‍🚒 Police, especially the K-9 unit. Dentists for dental hygiene...

Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
