The New School Bell

keeping-timeAfter students spent the whole breakfast break complaining that there wasn’t enough “time in the schedule” to complete their assignments, John thought he would help them “find time” by buying them an old school alarm clock. Unfortunately, his plan backfired a bit because the cheap thing is from China and the alarm setting doesn’t work unless you set it off manually. Hence, our students love it! The incredibly loud thing has now become our official school bell, break bell, dinner bell, and still functions as a manual alarm clock….At this point, our appointed time keeper (James) is even alerting kitchen staff when breakfast should be served. It is quite annoying, but the good news is: the schedule is being followed, they have found the time they needed for assignments, and yes, there is a signal for that too.
