Friday's Funnies

Every Friday we run comical stories about school children. Here are this week's selections. Remember to e-mail in those from the local area by clicking on the "Doc Stock" e-mail link on the sidebar.

At Math time, I told the kids that we were going to talk about Even and Odd. One boy yelled out- "I know that story. It's in the Bible! " After I quit laughing, I said- "I think you mean Adam and Eve. "Chris Minch ~ Stuart, FL

A kindergarten student at my school was sent to the office for saying a rather naughty word in the cafeteria. I talked to him about using other words to say when he was angry. We practiced "shucks", "darn", "rats", etc. I told him my favorite word was "dag nab it!". He said he liked that one, we high- fived each other and I went off feeling like I helped him. I later walked back in the office to find him still sitting there. He jumped off his stool, ran up to me and yelled "DAMN RABBITS!!" while grinning ear to ear!Mary SlavinStuart, FL

I was wearing a long, colorful skirt made out of that broomstick material when I was trying to explain the word "brag" to my First Graders. I was pretending to brag about being the fastest runner in the whole class. I was going on and on when a little boy raised his hand and said, "You can't run fast wearing that CURTAIN!"Chris Minch~Stuart, FL

A school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and was not noticeable at all. On the first day of the term, still with the cast under his shirt, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible and then busied himself with desk work. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took the desk stapler and stapled the tie to his chest. He had no trouble with discipline that term.

I appreciate the Friday Funnies, however, today doesn't seem to be the right time to post these. Our school family has lost a great teacher. Sharon Wright was one of the most thoughtful and caring teachers our corporation had. She was continually "taking one for the team" for the betterment of our students. I feel this might have been a better time to pay tribute to such a fine teacher instead of posting "Friday Funnies". Syracuse elementary, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

At times like these, I appreciate some light-heartedness.

In hindsight you could be right. My thought at the time was to stay with the regular routine here until I had enough information on her life and background to post an appropriate memorial here for her. I knew most of the school community was already aware of her passing so I decided to wait until Monday after her memorial service. Maybe it wasn't best. It wasn't because she was forgotten.

Thank you for sharing.
