Do political yard signs really sway anyone's vote? Does waving them on election day cause anyone who had not planned to vote, vote? If so, do they vote for the candidate on the waved sign?

Do not, for the sake of your child's teacher's sanity, call and ask for a meeting with said teacher and the principal without leaving at least a vague idea of what the meeting is about. It will make the teacher nervous to the point of being sick and unable to eat her leftover pizza for lunch.

If you have a gut feeling about something, go with it. If you don't, the decision will probably bite you in the rear. And then you have to write a whole nother note to your student's parents explaining the changed decision. Sigh.

10 1/2. That's how many days left of school. Hallelujah!

i doubt the signs change anyone's vote, but they do give you something to aim at when the drive gets boring.

better yet, send your child's teacher a note thanking him/her for the work they have done with their child, attached to a free movie ticket. better yet, send it by way of the principal. even better? go with your child's teacher (if your name is jen, and your child's teacher's name is kathy.)

amen, sister!
