In going through my saved emails I found this classic.

Me to an assistant principal:  The following juniors did not attend today’s Encore session…

Response from said assistant principal:  You need to notify the proper administrator, I have the 11th graders.

And the man has a master’s degree…

 

So, last month my school held its annual AP night.  For those of you not in the know AP stands for Advanced Placement.  AP night is a requirement to enroll for an AP class.  The student and at least one parent must attend.  There is a presentation from our senior counselor explaining the program and then each AP teacher has a table set up with information and contracts.

Yes, we make our AP students, and their parents, sign a contract.  It basically says that they are aware of the workload involved and agree to meet certain requirements to remain in the class.  Anyway…

The header on the contract read like this:

M_______ High School:  Where excelence is expected!

 

I’ll give you a minute.

 

That was the header of the contract that we had our brightest kids, and their parents, sign.  And we give the kids the high stakes tests…
