Jack had his Christmas program a few days before school got out. Fred, Renee, Dale and I headed to Oak to see the program. Security is VERY tight at Jack's school. We didn't get to get a picture with him before or after the program. The teachers formed a barricade and escorted the students in. When the program was over the principal got up and complimented the kiddos and then said to the audience, "Okay, this is what's about to happen: You are going to keep your seat and the students are going to file out of here (Que teacher barricade and students filing out.). Thank you for coming and Merry Christmas. Please exit out the front doors." She did not play. Did not. I've never seen a group of grown ups "obey" any better. Wow, we live in a world where the safety of children is so at risk that they have to be filed in and out of a room under the protection of teachers. I sure am grateful for Jack's school...security and all.
Fred and I were at the program, along with about 4 other parents. I really know how to pick a seat. Can you find my child in the above photo? Yeah, my neither. His teacher is blocking him. I'm awesome.
