Putting together my Music Room

by | Music Room

Music room of Pitch Publications.

We went back to work on Thursday morning and had most of the day to work in our rooms.  When I entered my room it was quite barren.  In addition, for whatever reason during painting this summer they had a need to to remove my Ukulele board.  No one seems to really know what happened.  The ukes were in a recycle bin and my rugs were nowhere to be seen.  I finally found them in the speech room (?) and at the end of the day my room looked roughly like this.  Note: this view makes my room look huge! It is pretty big but not quite on the same scale as it looks.

I would have gotten more done, but I spent 2 hours at our welcome back lunch, quite a bit of time chatting to our new team members and too much time running back home!  My husband had our kids for the day, and I drove off with all the car seats.  I fixed that and an hour later realized I also had his car keys.  Major family fail.  I will finish up my room early next week and post a proper look at what is going on in my room.

It was nice to see all my work friends and I am excited about our new team members.  I think it will be a great year!

Wrapping Things Up

My final advice? When in doubt, bake cookies! (Pillsbury makes an excellent pull apart cookie dough, I must say). A dozen cookies on someone’s desk can make them feel warm and gooey inside (pun intended). This strategy has been around since the beginning of time and is a tried and true method.

If you are new at school and looking for lessons for the first day, you might also enjoy this post on first day lesson plans! 

Who did I miss? Any other key people in school we should add?
