Me, too, Alisa. My wife was gonna freak if he didn't make it in.
Bill, the Optional Program is just a ramped up ed. program. I feel even better that it's at Grahamwood.

Way to go Jack! I went to Grahamwood many, many years ago. Back then all the schools had a safety patrol of kids. The girls wore uniforms and stood guard in the halls and the boys had flags on sticks at the major intersection of Summer and Graham. They had whistles and regimented stances with their polls to hold kids back from walking out into traffic. The kids also had military type rankings. Do you remember those days?

There were actual City School Awards that gave trophies to the best safety patrol in the city. Grahamwood always won.
