After we left her, the PTA was hosting a "Sip And Sob" for the new parents of Pelham Road Elem. So Larry and I went and checked it out. They had coffee, juice, and doughnuts. It was basically a meeting to suck you in to volunteer in the school. The PTA here is like Warren Road. Hungry wolves looking for fresh blood. I explained to them that I was going to be working during the day and couldn't spend a lot of time at the school, but would be more than willing to do things from home. Send snacks, cut out things for the teachers, etc. I told Larry that should hold them off for a little while. ;)
Something told me to look behind me at one particular moment. As soon as I did I saw Shelby, another student, and a teacher walking in the lunchroom. She was carrying a piece of paper. In school thirty minutes and is already running errands. I think we may have some student council material in our midst! She has always been a doer and willing to help out.
School got out at 2:30, so off we went several hours later.
We bombarded her with questions about her day.
Her answer, "I don't remember."
Well, I'm sure more information will eventually come out.
It IS just the first day.
