Oops

On Friday I was having Life Skills class with the 8th graders in a different part of the building. We were doing a circle game and needed an open space for it. A couple of the kids who had gotten eliminated from the game were horsing around, and one of them went against the wall too hard. She broke through the drywall.

Uh-oh

Uh-oh

We’re going to make it right. The two horse-play kids are staying after school tomorrow, when they’ll help me get a new piece of drywall screwed in, and get the first layer of patching compound on. I’m going to do the mud-job on this very slowly and in layers. It’s a high-traffic area, so it needs to look smooth.

    Well, there’s your next Life Skills topic. You’re doing the right thing and they’ll thank you for it someday.

    Kids.

    1. Amen to showing/teaching students how to repair these sort of things – I would bet this isn’t the only time this has/will happen. Her parents should thank you for that.
    2. She?! Hope this serves as a lesson to any who were possibly thinking of “messing” with this young lady.
