Every Thursday, I have playground duty. We are supposed to be out there by 7:15 to let the kids onto the playgrounds and to watch them until school begins at 7:45. There is a gate where the kids wait for the teachers on duty. Every morning they line up there well before 7:15. When they see us come out of the building they get an excited crowd noise. Today, I actually heard them rattling the gate. "You'd think they were waiting in line at Disney Land" I said to one of the other teachers on duty.
