Here’s what I found on the dining room table this morning. They would have submitted it to the school’s director today, too, except that someone spilled coffee(?) on it.

NAP PETITION

We, the 3/4 and 5/6 [grade classrooms], believe that it is unjust that the K and K alone are allowed naps, while we carry heavier burdens, both figuratively and literally.  Are we unworthy of naps? Have we committed some wrong that degrades us? If so, please speak up! If not just remember that Tyranny is no substitute for nap-time. Thank you.
