    I never expect anything (although I just received a hug from one of my life skills/behavioral students who rarely makes eye contact with me -- so nurse for the win!!)

    Gasoline cards?

    Our WAwa has them good for stuff inside the mart and the gas card for outside.

    Wawa is a local east coast chain of convenience stores like 7 11 and Cumberland Farms.

    Nothing of monetary value so far but I did get a gift from Heaven today and maybe tomorrow...it's cold (for South Texas) and rainy which equals NO RECESS!! Praise the Lord!
    We're starting to get really cold here & I'm hoping that will mean everyone will have gloves on for recess. We got a GaGa ball pit & it's taking kids' knuckles out left & right. SO many scrapes & other injuries! My secretary now calls it "the pit of death."

    We had a tether ball pole installed this year. Our new "Grim Reaper." But they keep going back for more and the teachers don't seem to notice anything out of the ordinary; what a surprise.

    Rarely get anything beyond a " Merry Christmas". We give more to our kids than they give to us and the wealthier community members give us money to buy gifts for our needier kids. I'm cool with that. My population needs the help.

    We used to have a stone lined pit, we now have a mulch lined after our move. TYL.
