So this happened last week

I really do believe Halloween should be on the last Saturday of October. Some students treat Halloween as a two day event: day one preparation and day two recovery. 
Halloween always seems to come with its slew of questions:
Miss do we have Halloween off?
What are you going to dress up as?
Are we having a Halloween party?
Do we have to do work on Halloween?
Can I bring in candy?
This year not only did I receive the typical questions, but I was given a note.
Let me explain the situation...students are given two weeks to complete vocabulary homework: week 1 spelling and week 2 definition. The homework is rather simple and I cannot remember a time when I excepted a student's excuse for why they did not do their homework; so when this note appeared this student didn't stand a chance!

I was so tickled by this note I paraded it around school like it was the president of the United States showing it to everyone I came across!

For those that are wondering this students earned a ZERO for his homework that he had two weeks to complete!

  1. LOL! Well I'm sure the student told his parent that he only had that one night to do it and that you were so mean for giving homework on Halloween! :D
