Details of a Carnevale party at Young One's school were sent home via a flyer this week, complete with a reminder that school parties are not open to parents!
Considering the steps that I must take to attend such a party during the school day, I am thankful that my presence is neither expected nor welcomed. It is a bit...eh...different, to say the least, from what I have come to expect from American elementary schools with their open doors and recruitment of volunteers. Quite different, indeed.
Has this been your experience? Would this clear reminder that you are not invited bother you? Please share.
Disclaimer: I hate generalizations. This is my limited experience at my third grader's tiny primary school lost in northern Italy. If you have a different experience with this, please share!
