Today was our showcase. Every six weeks we have an assembly to showcase our student’s talents. I am happy to watch our children on stage and I think it’s amazing. However when an assembly takes over the entire morning and starts late and is during a four day week right before a 2 day school week, it sucks. My students are already behind and this month has 2 two day weeks this slows us down. Add to this the next benchmark is in December. Also the students become restless and more misbehaviors pop up and now I know why my teachers hated assemblies.
