Weekly Smile: An Unexpected Note

The beginning of the school year is always the same – busy during every moment of the day. All the teachers are focused on getting to know the new children in their class, setting up routines, preparing for lessons, and (right now) thinking about assessment and reporting. We have a new principal and she slipped this little note of appreciation into our box:

Not sure what s’mores are? They are a sweet snack made up of a toasted marshmallow and chocolate bar sandwiched between graham crackers. The treat is called a s’mores as you will want more once you have tasted it.

I love the pun in the note. As I have come to realise, the new leader at our school has quite a sense of humour.

What has made you smile this week?

Grateful for Thank You Card

When I arrived home on Monday I had a pleasant surprise waiting for me on the table: snail mail that wasn’t a bill or a statement. The envelope was small and a light coloured brown. I could see from the paper that the envelope contained a card of some sort. When I opened it, I saw that inside was a Thank You card thanking me for presenting at the OLA Super Conference. Reading the card warmed my heart and made me smile.

This week I am grateful for receiving a short note which reminds me that my efforts were appreciated.
