07:14 pm: Gearing up for the last stretch
Today I wrote the exam for my fairytale class during one of my planning periods. Now I just have to type it all up.

Yesterday I baked a loaf of banana bread and today I made two dozen mini-cupcakes that will also be included among the potential rewards. We'll see what kinds of things the students choose.

I agreed to teach the students in the English club how to play euchre at tomorrow's club meeting, if at least three of them show up.

After my last class today, I worked on my yukata some more. I've gotten both sleeves finished and today I sewed the two body panels together. It's starting to take shape...though I suspect the collar will be the tricky part.

Tomorrow and Friday are my last full-schedule days for the rest of the term. After that, the seniors take their final exams. Since senior classes take up half of my courseload, I'll have a lot more free time at my desk. If I can just get through the next two days...

Good luck!

Senioritis is really a hard one to fight. If I were in the class getting treats, though, I'd be looking forward to the class.

When does the term actually end, and when does the new term begin? As I recall, there is not much of a break between the two school years.

I can hadly wait to see a picture of your yukata.

Love,
Mom

I don't think it has really registered with them that they're getting something. Especially since half of them still have to give their final speeches. (They're doing speeches instead of taking an exam.)

I'd have to check my schedule again to be sure, but from the best I can recall, the senior graduation ceremony is around March 1st. After that, the underclassmen take their final exams. Then there's listed a week of half-days...they're marked as "classes" but I don't know what on earth we'd teach, since the final exams will be done. I believe the official closing ceremony is on March 24th.

I don't know when the new term officially starts, but I think it's the second week of April.

Oh, then, coolness, you will be between terms during our spring break. Will it still be possible for you to meet us if we arrive on the 24th? Is that a day you can get off with closing ceremony going on?

I'm pretty sure it won't be a problem. I don't actually DO anything during the ceremony, just sit and watch as the principal and some other people give speeches.

Have you tried looking up tickets recently? It's probably okay to do so by now.
