If your child tells you there was a snake in our classroom today, then they are telling you the truth. A snake came out of our air conditioner today when I turned it on. I immediately got the students out of the classroom and Mr. Swygert and a few other teachers came to the rescue. We got the snake out safely with only a few screams from me. (I do not like snakes.) I was turning on the air for our GCC Gold Challenge today. We are all trying to get 33,000 steps (1/2 marathon) to compete for the gold pedometers. We stopped periodically throughout the day to exercise and dance. This helped most of us get a few more steps. The students can keep earning steps for the gold challenge throughout the day.
