Back to school Night!

As I've mentioned before, I love Back to School Night! Tonight is Ridgewood High School's...another chance to meet the teachers (somehow Pete has managed to have almost NONE of the teachers his sister had), get lost in the maze-like building, get crushed at "the intersection," find out what the teachers' expectations are, debunk some of the myths that sophomores and others try to perpetuate, and see some friends.

See you there!

Back to School Night was great! Thanks to all the helpful student volunteers who were able to point people in the right direction, no matter how far away from our intended destination. We only sat down in the wrong classroom once! (Hey, the teachers traded rooms, not our fault!)

The place was packed -- I love how many parents come out.

One new thing I learned about the high school -- I had no idea in the back of the architecture classroom there are saws and all kinds of "woodshop" equipment. Very cool!
