He’s back and that means Spring’s back! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s the one and only Rodger! A tradition in Mrs. Scannell’s classroom for more than 30 years, standing an egg up on the first day of Spring.
Now, I know there is very little, to no, science behind the tradition. But that’s ok! The meaning of the word tradition, according to Dictionary.com is:
Truly this sums up the custom handed down year after year to each new iteration of ‘3-Scannell’ as a way of passing on my long-established practice! I learned the practice at my grandmother-in-laws elbow more than 35 years ago and have raised my classes on it ever since. Rodger was named about 5 years ago by a particularly humorous group of students. They named him after an egg on a Sponge Bob episode (everything I taught that year rolled back to a Sponge Bob episode). And so now with each spring comes the return of Rodger.
And now, it is my pleasure to introduce to you, Rodger 2017!
