Jack be Nimble

Like many schools, our school has issued planners to our students. These are to encourage organizational skills, communicate all school policies and other pertinent information and are used as students' hall passes should they need to leave the confines of the classroom during scheduled class time. When students receive their planner in Homeroom, they also receive a pre-printed label that has their name and e-locker password on it. They are to place said label somewhere visible so that it can be returned to them should they leave it behind. Many teachers return found planners to the office. At the end of the class period, the secretary then calls students to the office to retrieve their missing property. It doesn't happen too often, and especially not so soon into the school year. But alas, it did happen to one unfortunate student. I believe he's new, as I'd not heard his name until Thursday when I- and 1699 other people in my school- heard this blasted through the PA system: "Would student Jack Mehoff come to the office please when the bell rings? Jack Mehoff".

Apparently, one of my students from last year crossed out his own name and wrote in this new one and then inadvertently left it in one of his classes. And apparently our school secretary is not a huge fan of the Simpsons. Good thing he didn't choose Michael Hunt or Amanda Huggenkiss.

Thanks for the chuckle. I can only imagine how embarrassed your school secretary must have felt later when she realized what she said.

I hope nobody has ribbed her too much!
