Day 7

Dear Students and Teachers,

 I apologize for not being timely on Charlie’s update from yesterday.  Things got a little hectic.
I’m sure you all saw that Charlie was an impostor, sitting proudly in the wheelchair as you walked in yesterday morning, pretending to be a nurse.  Let me assure you that Charlie is not a nurse and I was terrified that he had locked the real Nurse Jones in the closet! Luckily, he did not succeed in that feat!
I tried my best to caution you as you came in yesterday that if you were sick or injured it would be best not to visit Nurse Charlie.  If you did not heed my caution, I cannot be liable for the care Charlie might have given if you were his patient.
Hoping all is well with everyone today,
Mrs. Rock

Day 6

What?!

What?!

Oh Charlie!

No Charlie.....

Dear Students and Teachers,

 How dare Charlie rename our school today!  Does he not realize that we are THE White Oak Roughnecks and we ARE White Oak Intermediate!  I promise I will take our name back by in the morning.
Roughneck Pride,
Mrs. Rock

Day 5

Charlie the Elf

Charlie the Elf

Dear Students and Teachers,

 I’m not quite sure what to think today.  I can’t really be too mad at the little guy.  After all, he did try to brighten our hallway with cheer by beautifully decorating with his infamous tinsel.  For that, I have to give him a little credit.
On the other hand, he did position himself in a particular location that proves to be quite difficult for me to capture him.  He knows I’m afraid of heights! As you can see in the picture, the ladder isn’t quite tall enough for me to reach him.
Hmm….Has Charlie turned over a new leaf?  Has the shipping box I have labeled to Santa ‘Back To The North Pole’ scared him into acting right? I don’t know boys and girls. I just don’t know.  I’m anxious to see whattomorrow brings.  We can only hope for a Christmas miracle.
Keep your fingers crossed,
Mrs. Rock

Day 4

Dear Students and Teachers, 

I headed out to my car shortly before 4:30 on Friday afternoon and noticed that Charlie had not cleaned up his mess.  He could tell by the look on my face that I was not pleased with him.  As soon as I opened up the door to grab him, he took off running towards the building. Apparently it was his lucky day.  A teacher was exiting out of the front door just before I caught up to him and he slipped back into the building.  It wasFriday.  I was tired.  I headed back out to my car to clean the mess because after all I was ready to go home.  
 
As I came in this morning I realized I didn’t have to look very far to find our sneaky elf as he sat atop our Christmas tree that he toilet papered!  He disrespected our tree and I’M NOT HAVING THAT!  And can you believe he put up the sign stating ‘I’m Here’?  Really, Charlie?! I think we all know where you are without you telling us where you are.  I’m thinking that disrespecting a Christmas tree is grounds for immediate removal.  If only I could reach him.  I know – I’ll get Mr. Barry to bring me a ladder after school and I’ll get him down once and for all!  Shhhh – this is our secret.  
 
Wish me luck,
Mrs. Rock

Oh My Goodness!

Day 3

Dear Students and Co-Workers: 

I came in this morning and could not find Charlie anywhere.  I began to get a little concerned that he was actually up to no good, so my search began.  I walked the entire Intermediate building and could not find him.  Deep down inside I wondered if maybe, just maybe, Santa had an early ticket for him to go back to the North Pole.  I mean, his actions haven’t been the best around here lately and surely Santa would disapprove.  
 
Around 7:20 this morning, Mrs. Stewart and her daughter came in.  Her daughter said, “Mrs. Rock, your car looks funny!”  I said, “What? My car looks funny? No one has ever said that my car looks FUNNY.”  She began to giggle.  “What do you mean? Do you even know what I drive?” were my questions to her.  She then broke the news that Charlie had messed up my car.  I began nervously shaking as I approached the glass doorway to peer outside.  Low and behold THERE was Charlie!  Right in front of the steering wheel of my car!  He had to put up signs like ‘My Ride – Charlie’, ‘Charlie was here’, and ‘The Charliemobile.’  And if THAT wasn’t enough, he tied my car to the sign and wrapped it with tinsel.   
 
I know one thing – It’s Friday and at 4:30 this afternoon HE BETTER HAVE MY CAR CLEANED UP so I can go home!

Mrs. Rock’s response to this!

Dear Students and Teachers,

 I must admit that I was pretty upset yesterday when Charlie drank my coffee down to the last drop.  Many of you have seen me drinking my coffee in the mornings, so that’s pretty important to me.  I wasn’t going to let Charlie get the best of me today, so I began drinking my coffee on the way to work, determined that he wouldn’t get me again.
As I walked into my office this morning I was quite pleased to see the mess Charlie left had been cleaned up, but I was concerned because I didn’t see him.  But still, I was thinking today would be a good day.  After all, he knew I was pretty upset with him yesterday.
I was the first one from the front office here this morning so I began turning on the lights down the hallway and making sure everything looked like it should.  I was shocked when I got down to the faculty restroom. Charlie was using our toilet and he didn’t flush!  Does this young man not have any manners!?  I mean, really.  That is so disgusting.  I began yelling at him and told him he better get it flushed and quick!
Knowing how mischievous he is, I began to roam the building and check a few other restrooms.  To my dismay he “hit” those bathrooms too!  If you were one of the unfortunate ones that had to look into the toilet today and see that Charlie didn’t flush, I greatly apologize for his actions.  I’m most disappointed in him today.  I mean, it’s one thing to get me.  I’m a big girl and I can handle it, but to mess with my students and co-workers, he has crossed the line!
I have got to find a way to send him back to the North Pole and quick!
Mrs. Rock
