Pep Rallies, Fishing Poles and Go Fish

Week Two ended with our first pep rally launching us right into Labor Day weekend and maybe an end to our unrelenting heat wave.

For the most part, the pep rally which had a beach theme (Beach…then insert whatever your opponent's name) was pretty standard fare. The seniors were admonished not to belittle, berate or "boo" the freshmen. So instead, our seniors carried signs that simply said, "Boo," and then, when the freshmen did their little spirit chant, the seniors whipped out homemade fishing poles with fish attached to them.

That got my BFF to thinking about all the things teachers could attach to fishing poles when we are supposed to behave at teacher meetings. She had some pretty funny suggestions, but pretty much all of them belong in my "Things That Will Get You Fired Folder."

I taught at a high school in Ohio, and the teachers so fed up with the administrators made t-shirts that had BOHICA printed across them, and wore them to school. What does it stand for?

Bend Over Here It Comes Again.

No one was fired, believe it or not. Love the fishing pole idea! Leave it to those rascally seniors!
