Guess who’s typing from a BRAND NEW COMPUTER? I hadn’t wanted to say anything, for fear it woudln’t work out, but of course I got a RAGING deal on a sweet system with FOUR processors. That’s right, I can now have like 10 windows open and the little machine doesn’t even blink — in my head I hear it saying “bring it on lady — more giant photo files MORE.” It’s a great little guy. But this post isn’t about me. It’s about Conner — Conner and his boycott, to be more precise. I’m sure you’ve all been waiting anyway.
They had posters, they were chanting, and they actually got a lot of the other kids to come in and march too. It was really neat, and I know Conner felt proud since he says it was all his idea. I think it was nice to see kids showing support for a good thing, and realizing that they can make a difference, especially when they all combine for a common cause. The pictures show that it obviously didn’t STOP tetherball, but I think they got their message across. Hopefully it will remind ALL of us to be better sports and to make sure we’re being fair. Good lessons for every age. Now, I just hope there won’t be picketing when Miss Dodson says it’s time for math. On a side note, I can’t even tell how happy I am to have a teacher who basks in the glory of this type of thing. Many of the other teachers, I’m sure, would’ve brushed it off — but she just built it up and encouraged them. We’re so lucky to have her.
Almost as lucky as we are to have this new computer, but that’s a post for another day.
Way to go Conner, I hope tetherball stays fun!
