  •  I brought donuts to my teachers this morning (1+ / 0-)

    as they picketed our school.

    A group of them were in a circle singing protest songs. The music teacher was playing the guitar. Yes. We are lucky we have a music teacher.

    They were happy to see us. They were grateful for the donuts ... although I noticed I was not the only one to offer lots of provisions. LOL.

    And they said they have gotten overwhelming support from parents like us.

    As a CPS parent, I couldn't have been happier than to see them on the picket lines. And I wish them all the best.

    My kids are happy in camp, too. I didn't want to take a free spot away from a needier child so I sent my son to "emergency" summer camp for $40 a day.
