My son’s public school has asked parents to donate items for “care packages” that are designed to “promote a positive and encouraging End of Grade Testing environment.”  They have asked for the following items:

  1. two No. 2 pencils,
  2. one highlighter,
  3. a few peppermint candies,
  4. a small bag of chips,
  5. a small fruit juice box, and
  6. a note from each students’ family encouraging them to do their best on all EOGs.

In response, I have created a unique care package for students at the school.
