This was Teacher Appreciation Week at our school.
It's progressed a lot from what it was a few years ago when we teachers were asked to chip in for our appreciation meal after school.
That's mainly due to our excellent Student Government Association (SGA) kids and their two fearless and perky leaders, Nancy and Cindy. (You may remember Cindy from the PeeWee post)
Our SGA is one of the high points of our school. These kids really contribute a lot of time and energy to make our school a better place ... something it desperately needs.
It was a week of free lunches and treat deliveries. Several times a day, kids would show up at your door with a tray of goodies.
Very nice, but I had to practice some restraint since the daily treats included pizza, 300 calorie doughnuts and an almost 500 calorie fried apple pie thingie.
It's the thought that counts ... not the calories, right?
I just set those high calorie bombs in the teacher's lounge between classes and they magically disappeared.
One of my favorite treats this week was not edible, just a decorated brown lunch bag with personal thank you notes from students.
I savored every one.
They were delicious ... sweet, with no calories.
