Well tonight was open house night from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for my oldest sons school. I kinda figured it would be pretty organized and controlled. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! I mean holy hell fire!! I felt like I was thrown in the middle of a teen stampede. Trying to maneuver through the halls was like playing in traffic and the game operation all at the same time. Trying not to get ran over or touch anyone was nearly impossible. I am lucky I made it out alive or without killing anyone.
I mean seriously, how hard is it to organize an open house with some control? How about organize it to where everything is clearly marked on what you need to do or where you need to go. Ensuring that safety and order should definitely be priority, especially when there are parents there who brought their smaller children.
Speaking of parents who bring their children, how about the parents who brought their teenagers to open house in order to meet their teachers actually make them go meet their teachers instead of letting them run around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off?! Maintain some control and discipline among your offspring who represent you!! Open house is not for them to go and hang out with friends or scope out the guys/girls. Oh, and be sure to go ahead and let them dress like a bunch of buffoons while you are at it. Great first impression for the teachers. Bunch of jack waggons!!
Let’s get back on this school subject real fast. If you are going to have an open house, how about making sure the teachers are there so that we do not go to a locked classroom with a not saying “Will not be here. Sign the sheet.” I mean what in the world is that?! I came here to meet you and allow my kid to meet his teacher. You are the one who gives us the class supply list; you are the one who tells me and my child what you expect out of him. I NEED TO TALK TO YOU NOT A DOOR!!!
That was a waste of 1 1/2 hours out of my life that I will never get back. Next time just send me my kids crap in the mail!!!
I would like to here from any parents who feel the same or have better experiences than I just had. I wouldn’t mind hearing the thoughts of some teachers if there are any out there.
