The school where I work is really college-focused. I love it.
Yesterday the tenth graders went to a college fair most of the day. Tomorrow the 10th graders will take their first PSAT (please don't get me started on my hatred of standardized tests and my hatred for the whole college ranking system).
In an effort to boost their moral and get them amped for the test, the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders each wrote a note of encouragement that was taped to a tenth graders locker this morning for them to read today and then tomorrow morning before the administering of the tests.
This morning, there was so much joy and appreciation on the faces of the tenth-graders. To my annoyance and delight both, the tenth graders continued to read them sporadically throughout the day.
It was great.
