RE: Santa centerpieces and Do I allow kids to wash their hands?

I find that liquid soap doesn't get the paint off. I just tell kids and
parents that it will come off when they take a bath and use bar soap. BTW:
any parent who schedules an appointment to take pictures immediately after
school (without time to go home for a quick bath) is asking for trouble. The
photographers who are in our building, have their "weekends" on Monday and
Tuesday, so they can schedule sessions on the weekend without taking time
from their family.

Subject: Santa centerpieces and Do I allow kids to wash their hands?

My principal is having "Breakfast with Santa" and I'm supposed to have
students make centerpieces for the event (I know, don't say it). My
tacky idea is to cover paper tubes with glued tissue to make fake
candles with holly for the base. Does anyone out there have a better

Another note: A parent called my principal to ask (vent) if I allowed
students to wash their hands. It seems her first grade son had paint
"caked" on his hands and face and she couldn't get it off. (Crayola
Washable--has anyone had a problem with this?) He was picked up after
school and they were going right to a photography studio to have his
picture taken. (of course) This from a mom who has yet to send a paint
smock to school for her son. Thanks, I feel better. Oh, by the way,
students wash their hands all the time.
