December 20, 1982-The Journal Opinion-Page 9 BABY BOY QUOTE Marcia and Jay "You never know what is parents of a new enough until you know what is at the Cottage more than enough." 11.

This may be due to lack of time, lack of interest or a desire not to intrude on educators as they work with students. Some people's reluctance may be the result of past personal experience with schools. Or it may reflect the feeling that schools of today are strange and uncomfortable places or, worse, hostile ones. This is most unfortunate for both the citizen and the School. Whether citizens have children in school or have children who are grown, they will find that today's schools are dif- ferent from the ones they knew. The difference may be ob- vious that today's schools are different from the ones they knew. The difference may be obvious in terms of a newer and brighter building and more "sophisticated equipment." Or the school may be different in terms of the materials, facilities, and programs available to students. The visit may offer other surprises, such as the fact that children enjoy being at school and respond to its variety of activities and stimulations in positive and constructive ways. The visitor will probably observe that discipline, contrary to rumor, is quite good. Perhaps the most welcome part of a visit to the school will be found in the personal interest of the staff. They will welcome the opportunity to share information, discuss future plans, and communicate possible needs. Your honest criticism will, believe it or not, be welcomed as well. Educators never claim to have all the good ideas. The staff of your schools will not he the exception to this educational position. When planning a visit to the school, you may find it helpful to call in advance. Where school personnel are expecting you, they can arrange ahead for someone to give you a tour and answer questions. It's common practice, when entering the school, to report to the main office first. This helps the principal protect students by making sure unauthorized people are not in the building. During school visits, citizens often "discover ways the scfil can continue to offer them services -- adult education programs are one example. Some community members enjoy sharing their interests and talent with students and volunteer to give class talks and demonstrations. INTERESTING FACT "Exuberance is beauty." William Blake PRATT JR.
