Child Caught Chewing!

Today we start the new school year, although it is the second day of classes….

Everything is fairly normal at school.

I am ready for our blog to be normal again too.

So, here is a brand new story from last year!

Get excited... 

One day, I walked in the teacher’s room and the head teachers were all yelling at a student.

I had no idea what they were saying, but figured he was in pretty big trouble to get all 3 of them in on this.

The yelling continued for about 10 minutes and then the student was sent back to class crying.
I finally decided to ask one of the teachers what was said—
Staci: What was that about?
Teacher: He was caught chewing.
Staci: Wow. Really? That’s pretty bad.
Teacher: Yea, he knows he isn’t supposed to do that at school.
Staci: Well, he probably shouldn’t be doing it anytime since he is in 6th grade.
Teacher: Most 6th graders chew gum.
Staci: O! I thought he was chewing tobacco.
Apparently having gum on school grounds is a huge deal. 

Probably has something to do with the fact that the kids clean the school.
I use the word clean loosely...

They mostly push the dirt to the middle of the floor and then pour water on it.
