Happy February everyone! Is it just me or does it feel like Christmas was yesterday? That was the fastest January I've seen in years. Must be this new modified school schedule I'm on. Well, much has happened this last month. I am currently in the process of planning "the trek." It's our summer youth conference activity. In just 6 months, 250 youth from the Sacramento Stake will be dressing up in their pioneer garb and spending three days out on the Mormon Immigrant Trail together. I'm a little nervous, but I know it'll be fun. If you've been on a trek, and have any great ideas, let me know.
Yesterday was a rough day at work. I think I broke a record. 5 suspensions. I would elaborate more but I don't think I can. We probably do a suspension a week, but 5 in a day is a bit much. After speaking with all of the parents, they were all upset with their children, but realized that they had some teaching to do when their little one arrived home that day. I dislike bullies and this was a bullying issue. Please remind your kids, if there's a bully, we can take care of it. If we don't know the bully is out there, we can't help. The only way to get rid of a bully, in my opinion, is to teach the other kids how to deal with a bully. They have to be willing to unite and stand up for the kid who is being bullied. The also have to talk to an adult. It's the only thing that works.
