Dr. Seuss

Today was a stressful day - tornado drill, last minute meeting during prep, and flooding from a burst pipe.  The flooding was the worst.  We had to evacuate a few weeks ago due to flooding in the building.  Today we had updates - get everything together in case we have to evacuate, be prepared to evacuate at this time, one grade level evacuate, third grade evacuation was canceled 5 minutes before we were to leave after we packed up for the day. Staff had to move their cars so no one would be trapped at the end of the day.  The water was turned off in the building.  Why do you only need to go to the bathroom when you can't?  It was a long day!

Okay rant over.  With Dr. Seuss' birthday, I have compiled a list of some websites/activities.
