Smart Boards...

' Smart Board' is the buzz phrase at our school this year. Is it the same in all school districts? When Little Miss was in Kindergarten our school had one for the 5th graders to share. This year it sounds like each grade has one to share. But the PTA wants to keep buying more until each classroom has one. I am interested in sitting in on a class to see how they work. I know they are interactive but I really want to see how this helps the kids learn better. When LM's class gets their turn I am definitely going to check it out.

Since the PTA is buying these you know what that means: Fundraising Time. Yippee. In a few weeks we start selling 'Yankee Candles'. Not horrible at all. I am looking forward to seeing what the fundraiser will offer. Too bad the zillion dollars we pay in taxes doesn't cover smart boards. But I guess I can always use another candle.

Another fundraiser idea (not mine, obviously) is to have the kids pay $1 on Friday to wear something different for school spirit. For example: wacky hair day (ie. Halloween 2), hat day and my personal favorite: Pajama/slipper day. I was just talking about how I hate to see people out and about in their pajamas and now we want to encourage our kids to do it? Um, not likely here. I'll just have to 'lose' that flyer when it gets sent home. Really, is this necessary? I guess I am just getting old...
