Attack the F.C.A.T.

Last week was F.C.A.T. week, actually so is part of next week. Our school's theme was military, as in Attach the FCAT. We all wore army green t-shirts that read Attack the FCAT, some folks wore army fatigues and several found themselves being saluted while in public.

 Our pre-k decorated the bulletin boards with camo letters, our 1st and 2nd grades all put on performances to encourage the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to attack the FCAT.  Last year we had a Michael Jackson theme.  Extremely cute.

Anyway, the tags that I made were for the teachers.  I went out and (spent other people's money) bought gift bags and lots of goodies to fill the gift bags, chips, nuts, candy, fruit snacks.  The tags were tied to the goody bags and put in the teacher's mailboxes.  I also went out and got gift cards to places like Chick-fil-A, Panera Bread, Moes, Starbucks, McDonalds, Burger King and made little sleeves to put them in.

Not exactly the duties of a bookkeeper, but I had fun doing it.  On all the job descriptions for our school district the last line reads something like "and any other job that the principal deems your responsibility".  You won't hear anyone saying, "Not my job, man".

I thought the "re-treat from the FCAT" was especially clever.

Thanks for tuning in.
