Important Newsflash from CSES Second Grade
This just in from the Second Grade teachers and Principal:
There have issues recently in regards to pencil grips in the classroom. The second grade teachers, along with Mr. Palmisano, have discussed the concerns and have come up with what we feel is an equitable solution. We are sending all pencil grips home today with students. Two pencil grips with the student's initials written on it in permanent ink may be returned to class on Monday. . . Thank you for your help and cooperation in this matter."
Allow me to translate this into non-school speak.
We have about had it with your second grade kids. We can't believe how late spring break is this year. Although we are complaining about the pencil grips, we are really more pissed about the fact that your kids keeping teepeing the bathrooms and writing in poop on the walls. We deeply regret ever suggesting that a ".6" teacher is the equivalent of a full-time third teacher, at least when it comes to your kids. We are planning to sell our souls and do whatever it takes to get a third teacher next year for this rowdy bunch, because otherwise the third-grade teachers are all going to quit. We are even considering putting all 60 kindergarteners into one class size of 60 and borrow those teachers, because we are pretty confident that the kindergarteners will still behave better.
Now we are all going to go drink a bottle of scotch."
The second grade teachers.
