During another recent recess detention, the gentlemen offenders made themselves very useful. I asked them if they could figure out a way to attach my jingle bells to my classroom door. (I snagged these for just twenty-five cents at a garage sale this summer and have been anxiously waiting to get them out and add some holiday cheer to my surroundings.

While surveying the bell-hanging situation, they noticed that my doorstop was not attached very well. Being the helpful gentlemen that they are, one of them ran to the utility closet and grabbed the tool box. Not only did they hang my jingle bells, but they also fixed my door stop. I'm beginning to enjoy this recess detention thing.
