School on Saturday?!

I wanted to tell you about my experience with Albertville schols holding school on Saturday.  Due to having to be out for so many snow days, our school system had a choice to tack on days at the end of school, or go on a Saturday and get it over with.  The majority voted for Saturday, May 22.  I really wanted it to be at the end of school because I am what they call a "12 month employee."  I work year 'round, anyway...yes, even in the summer.  But, don't feel bad for me.  I have had to work in the summer with all my previous jobs, so what's the difference?!  Well, I was going to take a vacation day, since my son had graduated the night before, but I decided to be a part of history and go see how it would be.  When I drove up the parking lot looked like this...









...not too shabby from the looks of it.  This should be interesting.  There were some people that I caught working...









...but come lunch time, and the cookout was on!









There was ice cream...









Socializing...


















Dancing...









More dancing...









The kids even got in on the fun...






















We had a young Michael Jackson in our midst!










School on Saturday wasn't so bad.  I wouldn't want to do it every weekend, though!  We had about 76 students out of our normal 1350.  School dismissed around 1:30, and everyone was able to go enjoy the rest of their weekend.  Now, due the tornado, school will still be in session through June 4.  We all may be crazy by then, but most of us already are!  See...

Wow! That brings back memories.
Once, our teachers were on strike and we came to take roll every day and then went home. And our schedule had built-in 'snow days' because it was Chicago weather.

But it looks like you guys made the best of the situation!

Sounds like a fun day - for a day at work! :)
