The school my daughter attended and now my son will start on Tuesday has two parent work days each year. The first of these was on Saturday, and I was looking forward to hanging out with the parents and teachers of the school. I won’t have many opportunities to be part of the community, but it was wonderful to see familiar faces and meet some new ones. I did some tasks around the school, ate some pizza for lunch, and generally felt good about the time without really breaking a sweat. One thing I was really happy about was that the supply and storage closet that I organized last year has stayed fairly tidy and supplies were much easier to get to this year.
