I heard from Skip's teacher.
He could bring in glue-sticks for 'extra credit'. Apparently, every assignment is produced on a hand-out, and is glued into the notebook. They go through glue-sticks like water.
When Skip told me he could bring in 3 glue sticks and get a bit of extra credit, I was ALL OVER THAT.
So yesterday, he brought in glue sticks.
And what did that bump his grade up to?
A BEE PLUS.
Apparently, if he brings in 3 boxes of tissues, he can get MORE extra credit.
HELLO STRAIGHT A STUDENT.
Ahem. Does anyone see anything perhaps even marginally wrong with this?
