I don't know about you, but it's that time in our district... Report Card time.... dun dun duuuunnn! :-/

Not my fave thing to do. But, they have to get done.

Enter Graderade!... To help you power through report cards!

I read the term "Graderade" in a book by John Pearson called Learn Me Good (It's only 99 cents in iTunes and it's pretty hilarious!) And our Social Committee at our school likes to do little things to keep morale up (or try to at least!) So, we created "Graderade"!!!

We made labels and glued them onto little bottles of Gaterade and surprised the staff. Hopefully this will make report card time a little less daunting. And hopefully we put a smile on some faces.

You can grab the labels here if you want to spread a little report card joy too. Please leave me a comment and let me know how/if you can use them because that would make me happy!

Hope you had a great Wednesday!!!

  6. I am on the social committee at my school and I LOVE this idea! It would be tricky at our year round school though . . . . something to ponder!
