Every year, I check "Teacher Appreciation" because if I know nothing else in this life, I know how to appreciate people and things. Teaching ranks right up there as one of life's most appreciable vocations. And I never balk at the opportunity to let teachers, especially the ones educating my own kids, know that I feel that way.
Every year I get emails requesting help for Teacher Appreciation functions, but I've never really known if I was an official member of the committee or if they just send that email out to every parent whose email address is available to the PTO.
I am happy to report that, thanks to an email from the committee chairman, I now have the answer.
So with that, I have officially joined a committee at Ben's school. (Nice to know all of those crockpots full of chili and countless cookies weren't made in vain! Kidding, of course.)
#2 ~ Join a committee at Ben's school [though I now realize I could have checked you months ago], consider yourself checked!
Maybe in my unemployment phase, I can check a few more of those jokers off The List.
