The Ironic Catholic: Catholic School Scores Big Enrollment By Eliminating Supply Lists

The Ironic Catholic: Catholic School Scores Big Enrollment By Eliminating Supply Lists | The Amused Catholic: an Ezine | Scoop.it

Yizzeree, SD: Saint Agatha's Elementary school looks like most other Catholic schools: classrooms, desks, chalkboards, READ posters, crucifixes above the doors, kids in plaid uniforms.

 

They have one more thing that sets them apart from the rest: giddy parents.

 

"Oh my gosh, I can't tell you how happy that decision made me. I got down on my knees and started crying," gushed Mary Ellen Yubish, mother of 2nd grader Catherine. The decision she refers to? No classroom supply lists.

The Ironic Catholic: What they don't tell you in pre-Cana

Last Sunday, I was a little stressed. OK, a lot. For reasons not having to do with my family.

 

Had a brisk and grumpy conversation with my husband on the way home from church. At one point, we're figuring out breakfast prep, and have a conversation about bacon.

 

We pull into the driveway. I just sit there.

 

My husband kindly begins rubbing my shoulders. I start to relax.

 

After a minute, I say "So you knew I was that stressed, huh?"

 

And he responded, "Well, no. I was just thinking about bacon."
