National Hand Stamp When Leaving the Empire

Son's school starts today. The school had an open house last night. I thought it was kind of weird that they would do that before school started, but my mom explained it to me. Her 35+ years of teaching gave her the insight that an open house before school starts makes this situation go away....

[Scene: School open house during second week of school.]

Parent: So, Ms. Teacher, how is my little Johnny doing?

Teacher: Johnny... He's the one with the red hair and glasses, right?

This year, we found out that instead of being on "teams" where groups of teachers share the kids so that the kids in group A only have teachers from group A, etc., the new terminology is that the kids are in "houses."

I will recommend that Son try to get into Ravenclaw.
