Oh, how time is flying! Time is a regular Charles Lindbergh/Amelia Earhart around Newmentia these days. Four weeks to go.
Monday brings a practice test, Tuesday the ACT for all juniors, Wednesday the academic banquet, Thursday and Friday some cramming for next week's EOC, and Monday a last-minute wrap-up to elicit the best performance from each little testee! Heh, heh. You know what I said.
I think we are better off dwelling on the big picture, and willing to forgo the minutia that is hard to remember, of which there may only be a single question. I'm not out to get 100% from my clientele. It would be nice, and a pleasant surprise, but we are realists. We strive for the next-to-top category, and keeping everyone out of the basement. It will be a challenging feat this year, though we DID achieve it last year. Same class, different students. Apples and oranges. Let's hope it's a Mackinaw peach performance.
But that's just two of my four classes. The rest will be back to business as usual, and may get to make paper bridges or drive Hot Wheels cars down a ramp. We'll see how the weather goes, and what stage the moon is in. No need for Mrs. Hillbilly Mom to bring undue stress on herself during the short haul to testing.
It it retirement yet?
