Re-Supply Sargeant

One of the greatest things about testing days -- everyone has pencils. So the kids are ingrained -- you should have 2 sharpened pencils with huge erasers and colorful grippy thingies. You should be comfortable (this used to mean, "bring a jacket in case your room is cold," but like a decade-long game of telephone, this now means kiddos try to bring blankets, pillows, slippers.

But back to the pencils. I've found half a dozen nice, new pencils lying in the hall each day since the test. Most of them still have the colorful grippy thingie too!
