My new favorite person is the Classroom Captain who explicitly instructed parents not to 'reply all' to emails.
There's something really ironic about being stuck behind a school bus, while trying to make it home in time to get my kids from the school bus.
Today's Stupid Waste of Time award goes to spelling homework.
(I know, I know, all kids learn differently.)
I appreciate the emergency plan, but HOW MANY TIMES CAN I FILL OUT THE SAME INFO?
Seriously, you need to provide this info just to register the child, then each year you are asked to fill it out within the first week of school, then for the nurse, then verify it is correct on the online page, then for the directory, then just for FUN! And this is from a paperless/green initiative school.
Why is there not one master form per family?

The sassy, spunky, Princess Cupcake Jones is back, and this time she refuses to go to school!
Children will be amused by her stall tactics, and parents will recognize them as all-too-familiar! As it turns out (SPOILER ALERT!) Cupcake loves Kindergarten! Her teacher is nice, and she's quick to make friends. There was no reason to protest afterall.
Just like the first book, this story is brilliantly illustrated with images of the modern family.
Be sure to visit the Princess Cupcake site to find lots more fun and activities!
Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go to School was written by Ylleya Fields, illustrated by Michael LaDuca, published by Belle Publishing, Sept 2014
"That teacher is SO mean! She calls on people when they're not even raising their hands!"
HAHA, classic trick, right teachers?
They chose their own clothes and did their own hair. What am I even here for?
Add 'test questions' to my list of things that need to be edited/improved. Aren't these worded in a confusing way (esp the bottom one)?
The reasoning I got from the boys--
"But you can't replace 'appeal' with any of those words. It doesn't fit the format of the sentence."
"No, Jesus did not tell us how to love God? I thought he DID tell us how to."
"Wow, look at this text book! That's like a big kid book."
"It's not for homework. I only have reading tonight."
"Oh! This book was supposed to be covered!"
Grrr. It's a good thing I shop at a store that still gives brown bags.
Day 4 folks. Day 4.
I went to school to help with the first day of first grade lunch. I saw lots of chips ad strawberries being eaten, and lots of untouched sandwiches. So, basically, they caught on really quickly.
