Yesterday marked the last day of school for our students. So all this week it was not unusual to pass by the assistant principal’s office and see textbooks laying on the floor outside the closed door. The assistant principal has seen very little of his office this week, as he has camped out in the bookroom doing textbook inventories and taking up books in a very organized manner. (Note: Destiny and a Panther scanner make it go relatively smoothly.)
So it was not surprising to see the note pop up on his door one morning this week. Also it was not surprising to see the books seem to suddenly appear anyway, despite the admonition with extra exclamation marks.
So one of our teachers with such dry wit decided to write a note of thanks for the job that gets done each year (giving out and taking up books) and give it to our assistant principal. But he chose quite a dramatic fashion to present it.
Too bad the asisstant principal only got to enjoy it with the picutres I made (pictures that are not all that great–sorry.) He never made his way to his office yesterday morning to see the display. He never did get to appreciate the special way his card was “presented.” Afterall, what school perosn in charge of textbooks doesn’t spend their last few days, particularly the last day of school, up close and personal with the textbooks in the textbook room?
The rest of the staff and students thoroughly enjoyed the irony of this display though!
Just in case you can’t read the note, here is what it said:
Hey Mr. R.,
I was afraid if I just put a note in your box you wouldn’t really appreciate it. I already packed my tape so I created a platform to hold the card. Now remind me, is it okay to stack books by your door? Anyway, thanks for all you do, and I have boxes ready to clear the books when you are ready to get in our office.
P.S. Before you fire me Mrs. C, approved it.
