“SHELTERING” OUR STUDENTS  Today, we practiced a shelter-in-place drill, more commonly known as a tornado drill.  It was our goal to determine whether or not we had enough safe spaces in our school to shelter everyone.  So, we led our students through the halls and into the locker rooms and squeezed in like sardines in a can.  The great news is that we had more than enough space to shelter everyone.  The even better news was what I learned watching our students participate without fully knowing what and why it was happening.  This small event highlights just how great our students are.  They were smiling and laughing on the way in.  Even when they were cramped into a tiny space standing shoulder to shoulder, we heard more laughter than complaints.  In fact, they seemed to be enjoying the new experience.  Of course, had we asked them to stay in there for hours I am sure I would have seen a different set of behaviors.  But, for now, it was commendable.  So, thank you for parenting great kids with positive attitudes!  It certainly makes my job a delight.
