Word of the Day

We can't trust that ground hog to get rid of winter, and the month of February has been somewhat on the nasty side. So your challenge is to bring in March by giving winter its MARCHing orders. Creativity counts for everything!

That's No Excuse!

Tomorrow is Parent / Teacher conferences at our Middle School, with conferences for the High School on Monday (yes, conferences on Valentine's Day!). One of the issues I will deal with on both of these days is students who never turn in their homework! Luckily, I have never had a student use the dog-ate-my-homework excuse. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with THE BEST EXCUSE EVER for not turning in homework. If I have ever heard it, you will be instantly disqualified, so be creative! Bonus points go to excuses that are plausible, believable, yet still amazingly crazy! And I will be docking points for poor spelling, grammar, or punctuation! Happy Jousting!
