Clip to ScrapBook #2

I think what you are doing sounds really cool. What if you got some caution tape and hung signs on your bulletin boards that said "Under Construction"? Or you could hang blank pieces of paper and title the boards "Coming soon: Your Child's Work." Then very briefly explain what you are trying to do. I would not decorate them just for open house just to tear them back down. I also wouldn't care too much about parents being disappointed, but I'm kind of rebellious that way. As the year goes on, they'll figure out what a fabulous teacher you are, with or without decorations.
