I agree with this do-over philosophy.
Maybe a point is deducted for lateness, or you can no longer get 100 after 2 tries, or some stipulation to show accountability and timeliness, but this is totally valid. Redoing it shows that they care to get it right!
My son's Language Arts teacher allowed them to resubmit written assignments for a potential higher grade after editing and making corrections-- that's how writing works! Few things are once and done. The most highly esteemed writers have editors, and submit many, many rounds of rewrites; why should kids be expected to get it right on the first try?
3" binders are really big. Unless you're compiling industrial chemical manuals or running a pharmaceutical clinical trial, it's probably overkill.

8 seconds after walking through the door, his shirt came off. Honestly, today was probably the longest he's had a shirt on since school let out in June 🤣
This is great. Gives us a lot to think about.
Fine with me!
'So long, snow days' also means 'so long, days tacked on to the end of the year, which is a waste because they don't do anything anyway.'
(Relax, there's still plenty of time to be a kid, play in the snow, and drink hot chocolate.)
I know I've shared this before but it's too good not to share again.
Last week there was a special day when the kids got to wear a Phillies shirt for $1...we go to a non-uniform public school and they wear Philly sports team clothing more often than not but yeah let me pay $1 for that hahaha
What causes the most stress at homework time?
Honors Language Arts
ANOTHER GODDAMN SCIENCE POSTER THIS IS NOT ART CLASS WHAT THE HELL
Look closely; there may be a hint in the list above.
Why oh why oh why were zero snow days built into the schedule? Do they not remember where we live?
So tomorrow likely pushes graduation back...super.
I can't wait until my kid becomes a scientist and makes posters all day 🙄
