I spent the morning at the kids' school, volunteering as a hall monitor on the Lower El floor during end-of-grade tests. My main task was making sure kids were only in the bathroom one at a time. To say I'm not a fan of high-stakes testing is a bit of an understatement, but I was thankful for the opportunity to help just a little bit during what is undoubtedly a very important, stressful week. As I often do when at the school, I found myself very impressed with and grateful for the staff and how they support the students. I used my spot in a chair at the end of this particular hall to say silent prayers for and send loving thoughts towards the students and staff I encountered.
