Okay - my disclaimer: This post is 100 percent off the cuff and before I have all my facts. In fact, it's a fact finding post - I'd love to hear from anyone who knows anything about this.
Our conversation/scene this morning:
As my bigs were walking out the door Allan grabbed the family Bah Humbug hat and plopped it on his head sharing that today is hat day at the high school.
Wendy did her little frown thing and shared that while they have spirit/hat days at her school too - they have to pay to participate. As in, if she wanted to wear a hat on hat day, she'd have to pay a dollar.
To who? And how in what world on what planet does that encourage school spirit? Seriously?
I'm hoping she has it wrong, but Allan nodded that, oh yeah - I heard they were planning to do that at the middle school.
I never got the memo. Which means if I didn't get the memo surely someone else didn't get the memo and if it's indeed true - kids are paying for something they shouldn't have to without their parents knowledge
She must have it wrong.
Because I'll be ranting more if not. And I do hate ranting.
