Planning fun school events

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

One of our assistant principals (who is a fairly good friend of mine) sent out an email to all faculty and staff, with the guidelines for our school's pre-Carnival parade on Friday. Yup, we're having a parade. In the afternoon. All around school. Then a faculty vs. students volleyball game. Controlled craziness.

Anyway, the email said students could wear jeans and a solid colored T shirt (instead of our school uniform), plus any headdress from a previous Carnival costume. Imagine tall feathery and glittered up things - those are the headdresses. We're not talking a little tiara here, we're talking CARNIVAL, baby!!!!!!

So I emailed back that it was too bad I had just mailed off my wedding dress, train, and veil, I could have worn that on Friday for the parade.

She emailed back that I was a hot mess, LOL!!!!!

We crack ourselves up!

Seriously, though, I've always said that I could get a white or silvery bathing suit, attach the wedding dress train, add the veil and maybe a tiara, and it would be a perfect Carnival costume!

Of course, I'm personally not ready to march down Main Street in a swimsuit, but that's beside the point!

    I just wore dark shorts and a colorful top - few kids in carnival costume, but the ones that were had lovely colorful costumes and headpieces.

    It sounds like you have a ton of fun with your students...I'm sure you'll come up with something that will make a statement. Have fun!

    I think I'd better not be TOO off the wall for Friday, LOL - my 86 yr old father is arriving later that afternoon, and I'll go straight from school to the airport!

Although I do have a gorgeous white hat with lots of tulle and little flowers - very "tea with the queen" kind of hat!

    That pink and coral ensemble sounds pretty gorgeous! Here's hoping you do something totally outrageous for the parade and create yet another dazzling memory for your students. Thanks for your comments on my red cowgirl boots picture too: I do so enjoy being silly now and again!!
