Re: seating and bookbags

The PTA thought it would be a really good idea to come into my room without
asking and put up coat hooks for the kids backpacks. I told them no way,
there was no room and I would manage them (it only affected two classes a
week!) my way. This year I have shelf space for those few classes that come
right before lunch, change classes and bring books or dismiss from the art
room. For this past year, they either put them on the counter (if it was
clear) or put them on the carpet...and we managed. It was certainly better
than me loosing my wall space and the ability to put in storage cabinets and
shelves. They had even had someone make the peg hooks before they
investigated if it was even ok with our custodians to install them.
