My brother has a juicy job in England where he gets to go around the world and rate hotels. I too would like this juicy job where I can deep-sea dive in Cozumel, Mexico. Really? Here I am slogging away in classrooms, oh the sibling rivalry!
On the other hand, the acceptances keep me smiling, but not elections. I tend to pick the underdogs all the time, they may not win, but I still hold fervently to the notion of clean politics. I do support Spike Lee's endorsement of Bernie Sanders. I like the innocence of Mr. Smith goes to Washington to clean up corruption. Many would say not the real world. I dream, however, like most young people. One honest apple can have a healthy effect on the lives of many...Think about it....
It is that day of the week....Wednesday. we get all that information out. We know that those who completed the CSS Profile, paid and submitted....should.now be receiving notification of the IDOC form that they are to complete.
Come see us for completion. It is time.
For NONCUSTODIAL parents, their form now needs to be done.
Deadlines for these forms usually run until March 1. Let us see to its completion, yes?
Normally...we have this ceremony late May..early June. But one of my funky students from India...a raging DJ there in New Delhi...wants to provide the music. I have listened to the tapes...he rocks! So for the first time in 20 years....we will reschedule the Farewell Ceremony for last week of June to accommodate our college bound New Delhi DJ wunde...
Today is Ash Wednesday in Jamaica. We salute Bernie Sander's victory. Did I hear free education? I like the political revolution. Anytime a politician promises education for all taxing Wall Street, I am all ears. Too many students turned away from a decent education for lack of funds.
I salute Hakeem Angulu for his victorious acceptances that came against all odds. We know he was desperately sought after when he got the Principal's award at Choate Rosemary in 11 th grade, an award only granted in 12th grade. He joined the choir, the debate team, aided the poor who lived off Mexico's dumpsters, assisted the youths in the democratic campaign process....the list would fill pages of any ambitious student's resume.
So the wheels are churning for the island of Barbados. Who said Zika virus....the Bajans take it with much aplomb, they do their thing and life goes on. Just spray on the insect repellant, wear long sleeve shirts and life was just fine on the island. What we did not know is how very appreciated our presence would be there. Enormous...my email and repeat visit is mounting and precious. The Montego Bay director is hedging her bets as to when she can go and visit.
So to all the darling students I met, along with their parents, famous last words, "I will be back soon!" Yes, the blog should have been up yesterday....but tardiness.....
