At our school, nosotros conduct keep an subsequently schoolhouse instructor get-together every brace of months or thence called 'Downtime.'  It's a fourth dimension for us teachers to exactly chill out a picayune flake together with relish a fourth dimension of corporation together.  You'd live surprised how picayune nosotros genuinely larn to utter to ane another!  Our attending during the schoolhouse twenty-four hours ... as it should ... goes to our students - non to ane another!

Well, this fourth dimension roughly the 1st degree squad (of which I'm a part) together with fourth degree squad were our Downtime hosts.  And our Downtime twenty-four hours exactly thence happened to autumn on the starting fourth dimension twenty-four hours of Spring.  In accolade of the starting fourth dimension twenty-four hours of Spring, we chose to host a Spring cupcake bar equally our Downtime treat.  And what a fabulous process it was!
