Where's Our Teacher

Today I came to school and noticed Mrs Golder's things weren't there. After fitness, Mrs Vickers told us that she had a headache and will not be attending school today. We got our chromebooks and bags ready. Me, Lupe and Timote Junior went to Room 1. When we arrived there I opened my chromebook ... It was dead. So we had to march back down to the Senior block and ask Mr Reid if we could borrow some of his chargers. We stopped at Room 12 to get our general books for writing. After morning tea we went to Room 12 to get our chromebooks. At the end of the day we had fun being in Room 1.
