Here are a few glimpses of Monday's pep rally. This was hanging in the auditorium.


"To exemplary and beyond" is our school motto this year. "Failure is not an option" is also written on the back of our special TAKS t-shirts and is oddly reminiscent of Charlie Sheen's Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour. Hmmmm.

Also? Failure is always an option!! That's real life folks. We have to wear our special TAKS shirts for three days this week and it pains me to be walking around with a lie written across my back. So I've taken to wearing a sweater.

We enjoyed several performances as well: such (rewritten) classics as "I Will Survive" (performed by teachers in 70's disco attire), and "Baby got back" with motivational lyrics.


The kids loved it all! Now all we need to do is get through the actual testing, then we can all breathe a little easier...

OMG I LOVE "Baby got TAKS"!! Our kids just took LEAP test (Louisiana) a few weeks ago. We didn't really do anything special to prep for it at the junior high I teach at, but my mother in law works in an elementary school, and they got t-shirts for everyone. I couldn't help but think about how that t-shirt is going to be a painful reminder for some of the kids when they don't pass it. :(

Did President Bush fly in and utter his now infamous message to the troops...

Sometimes I look at mottoes (I have no idea how to pluralize motto) and wonder if they really thought about what they are saying.

We had a a superhero theme last year and our slogan was "To Exemplary and Beyond!". I have to say, we did get exemplary that year :)
