  2. Blue sheet-- how many seniors are failing and will not graduate?-- appears.

  5.  Variations, the school magazine, is published.

  10. Grade Grubbing continues.
  11. Tuesday after graduation is silent and focused.

  15. Grades are done.
  16. Last Grade Grubbing conversation is finished.

  18. SUMMER!

Sun Tea

We drink gallons of sun tea in the summer...

10 Red Rose tea bags-- decaf or caf.
4 springs of orange mint
half a gallon of water in the old glass martini pitcher from 1968.

Set it all in the sun for several hours, then squeeze the water from the tea bags and add a large wooden spoonful of honey. Stir well and chill.
