“I’ll Do Whatever”
We’ve been here before. At this time last year (and the year before and the year before that), I wrote in the Friday Thoughts about all the things happening on Mustang Mountain. I wrote about the craziness going on at school as we were planning the banquet, standardized testing, the ACCESS Gators meet, the Day of Service, and many other projects— and in each of those cases, every time I asked someone to help out, I heard the same thing: “I’ll do whatever.”
Fast forward to this year, and things are exactly the same— maybe even better. Here’s a quick list of all the ways I’ve seen everybody step up and help out as needed lately:
- An Evening at CAC
- Standardized Testing
- Parade of Dates & JR/SR Banquet
- Chaperoning the Space Camp & Lights Up trips
- Covering Classes (when we’re short on substitutes)
- Helping with Fine Arts events
- Driving buses for Field TripsACCESS Gators/Day of Service
- Cutting yarn in the auditorium
- Blowing up 2,018 balloons after school
Every year I hear comments about how “this year is the craziest it’s ever been,” but I’m not sure that’s true. They’re all equally crazy. These final two months of school are a sprint to the finish with a trip, game, ceremony, event, or program every night of the week, and without an “I’ll do whatever” faculty, I don’t know what we’d do!
Over the next few weeks, I’m sure several more needs will pop up, but I’m also sure we’ll help out as needed— because that’s what we do. Thank you.
