Pinner said, "Back to school night-- might be cheesy for middle school but who am I kidding lol". I'm thinking I could give a cute jar of mints to the teacher thanking him/her for his/her commit-mint, involve-mint etc. with my child!
new student packets. the teacher makes 5 extra of everything at the beginning of the school year so that when a new student comes midyear, she has a name tag, beginning of the year info, labels for folders/journals, etc. for the student.
