RE: last day of school


Date: Wed May 21 2003 - 11:29:10 PDT

I do the same thing, kids love to help, and I give 15 minutes of recess
at the end as reward.

these are the jobs that were on my list this year:
sort items in the right places
test markers, throw away bad ones
pick out crayon paper scraps from crayon bins also do this with
sort through books and make sure they
    are correctly history,
     crafts, drawing, etc.
look through all brushes and regroup by
    size, throwing away bad ones (I check
     first to see if they are really bad.)
Throwing away pencil stubs
Clean clay tools
put new nametags on bins for following year (blanks)
scrub tables, give them paint scrapers and good sponges, and a LITTLE
bit of Ajax.
Clean stools of paint drips
wash fronts of cabinets
take down bulletin board paper
straighten paper racks and fill for
   following year
clean scissors with goo gone
condense glues and throw away empties
sort through poster rack to see if they are
    categorized correctly
clean out storage bins
sort jewelry tools

We did all of this on the last day. Ahhh...time to put my feet up!
lol...actually, my fall supply order is here and I have Christmas in May
before I can go home. Cleaning out the store room, etc. Let's
see....I've had these materials for 15 years and I haven't used
them...should I keep them??? I'm in a purging mood this spring!!
