You might recall that the PLMS mascot is the wolverine. Over at Impact though, we have new mascot. One of our paraprofessionals at a recent field trip to lucky strike in Bellevue won this adorable pizza shark in the arcade. Collectively the bus full of Impact, staff and student alike, christened him our new mascot. He is very cute and fuzzy.
A certain student, who shall remain nameless, likes to leave their stuff scattered around the impact portable like some sort of yard sale. In a moment of jest I informed her that if she refuses to avail herself of the cubbies in the portable I will be forced to hide her things in creative ways. My hope being that the frantic search at the end of day will create a lasting memory for years to come. One favored tactic I have developed in this ongoing drama is to place objects in the ceiling. This puts them just out of reach of students without assistance while leaving them out of where they would typically search, all while being in plain view the entire time.
This one just amazes me, and is a bit of a non-sequitur. This can is so perfectly crushed. About 60% of students surveyed agree, this is excellent and uncommon. According to the story I was told, this was accomplished not simply by stepping on the can, nor stomping on the can, but rather by jumping into the air and landing directly on top of the can. Amazing.
