Student Excuses- Trying to Get Out of PE class

No PE for Me Please!

Hopefully Helpful School Nurse Tip: You'll hear so many unbelievable things over the years of your school nursing career that you honestly won't be able to remember all of them. Write them down as they happen; you'll laugh & thank yourself later!

Years ago I worked at a junior high school (grades 6, 7, & 8). 

One day a nice, quiet, smart boy (and obviously someone who planned ahead!)
sketched me a beautiful picture. He thanked me for

"Three years of healing"! 

You can just imagine my heart melting as I thought of how much he appreciated all of my help over the years :)

The very next day he returned to my office
(keep in mind I'm still feeling appreciated and thankful because
of the beautiful bubble letter artwork he recently gifted me!)

 He asked me if I still liked the picture he made just for me! 
Of course I'm thrilled to tell him how much I still liked the picture.

Then he begs me to please, please, please
excuse him from PE class that day...
I'm CRUSHED- that quickly! 

What some kids will do to get out of mile run day!
Anyone relate?  What is the craziest excuse you've received?

Write it down today so you'll remember it tomorrow!
