A Test of Wills




Hello Troops,
Today will be a true test of our ability to juggle multiple events at once. Some might say we stand ready to challenge a perfect storm without regard for life or limb, yet here we stand - ready for whatever may come.

The following events are swirling in the darkest of clouds over head.
  1. We have our normal field trip from 9:30 - 1:30. One of the classes will be 35 students. This requires a full teaching staff and four simulators.
  2. We have another 2 classes coming for a field trip from 2:00 - 6:00 P.M. Again, the staff will be staying late to accommodate this extra field trip.
  3. Central Elementary has parent teacher conferences today between 4:00 and 7:30 P.M. The halls will be choked with parents and students.
  4. Mr. Schuler finishes his Aviation Merit Badge Class tonight starting at 5:30 P.M.
  5. Mrs. Clegg will be starting her Nuclear Science Merit Badge Class tonight at 6:30 P.M. This will prove to be interesting because both merit badge classes and the field trip require the Discovery Room. How we will juggle that is yet to be determined.
  6. Another concern is keeping children from crawling all over the Galileo in the Lunchroom. Several teacher hold their conferences in the lunchroom. Their children run loose while their parents talk, and of course, the Galileo is a child magnet. They are drawn to it like flies to fire.
  7. Another concern is keeping children away from the Starlab Dome while we teach the Starlab lesson to the field trips. I'll have to post guards at the Galileo and the Starlab.

The wind is blowing and clouds swirl overhead. But, never fear, we are the staff of the Space Center. We will prevail as we always do because we are good, adaptable and flexible. It's that simple.

Thanks Troops for the extra effort today and tomorrow will require.

Mr. W.
