Schools do not waste time trying to get money from parents! At least, my kids' school doesn't. Today was the completion of the 15 school day. After spending a fortune on school supplies, they have already had school pictures, a book order, and- as of tonight- pizza night at a local restaurant.
We usually don't go to the pizza nights. They get rather crowded. However, my husband worked late tonight and what I had planned is going to take too long to cook. By the time we get there, the crowds should have died down, too.
I can always dream, right? Wish us luck!
