The teachers and students from two Birmingham City School, Whatley and Gibson are opening school on Monday at the just completed, brand spanking new Hayes K-8. That's great news, as it's a wonderful new facility. The bad news for the administrators and faculty.... they were just able to get into their rooms on Friday. I was happy to lend a hand to help one teacher unpack her room and get ready for her 24 first graders on Monday. Lest you think it was a sacrifice on my part, go no further, I had a ball. I spent a lot of time reminicing over many, many books that I loved as we unpacked. I've been promised that I can come back and read aloud as often as I want.
The mountain of empty boxes speaks for itself. I'm sure they all put in many hours this weekend as well, but will have their rooms welcoming for the bright shiny faces on Monday at 8:00 am!!
