Thank you to all the families who spoke with their child last night. The attitudes were in check this morning and we have had a very agreeable and productive day.
During homeroom these days I am playing the game highlights from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. We have had some very interesting discussions about the interviews players give after the game and the ways in which they do or do not support their team-mates while demonstrating sportsmanlike values. It has been very interesting.
This morning I also had this quote from the American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson:
We all need a chance to start again and do better. The kids did that today.
Enjoy the weekend, and for anyone motivated to start studying math this site is helpful: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/index.html
