New TA TAs

Denham Springs, LA

#1 Mar 29, 2012
Recently at ZES, which teaches 2nd and 3rd graders, another fund raiser has begun. It is a good cause, Breast Cancer Awareness fund raiser, 3rd annual event. The simple pink paper speaks briefly about what and when and the survivors will be acknowledge.
My issue is if there is a child whose mother or grandmother has recently been diagnosed .... and the school is now delivering the grand news that people die from this disease. I am certain no one is aware of the child who is dealing with the anxiety of his parents disease while his class mate discuss who they know has died from cancer. Yes, cancer is a reality, death a reality, but maybe an issue parents would prefer be left at home. Is this really something that 6,7 and 8 year old kids that sing about Santa Claus really should be doing? Yes, the children are our future, but is it up to them to try to save the ta ta's.
