This little fundraiser raises more than money--it raises expectations!
Who gets a flower? Who gets a bunch of flowers? Who got a bear added to the flowers? (That happens when someone drops off a gift in the office & asks that it be delivered last period.)
Today students were just crazy! The love was everywhere--EVERYWHERE, I tell you! By 8th period, well--it was interesting, to say the least.
Then, just as with every high point, comes the crash & burn part. Some folks didn't get flowers! Hearts were visibly broken--boys as well as girls. I went through more than just a few tissues in my classroom after school.
Poor little things--eleven is too early to be starting this.
Should I tell them it never gets any better?
