Bag of Randomness for Thursday, August 8, 2019

  • Yesterday was a “big” day for the students and parents of our school. Emails were sent out revealing who got what teacher.

However, I can’t recall how this was done when I was in elementary school. I know for sure we didn’t receive a phone call, and I’m pretty certain nothing was mailed. I think we just showed up the first day of school, our parents searched for our name on a bulletin board, and then escorted us to the classroom.
