Sept will be a better time for me to start.

Barb, It would be fine for everyone to send their cards and emails to your house. My main concern is that the parents will have to ok their childrens' involvement to you first. Some parents do not like the idea of their childrens names being on the Internet at all.

Since we ask that the kids post thank-you notes, they would have some exposure--even if very little.

Tami, when my gd was involved I made the thank you notes on the board. Plus I saw where others made the thank you notes , I don't believe that the kids did this... If I'm mistaken please forgive me

I do understand that the first name would have to be given out, but yea, alot of names are the same and no one would still know the child so to me it would be safe.
Still I would get the parents permission before doing anything like this... I wouldn't want my kid's teacher doing something without my permission.

That's why I said it would be Sept before I could take involment in this.
When we have our Parent met Teacher later on in the month, I will have a little flyer explaining this to see if the parents would ok it.

I just wanted to make sure it was alright with Fc pc's rules before going to the next step,.

Bar_bar, You are right, you can write a thank you for the kids too. Some allowed their kids to write thank yous under their parent's username.

This sounds fine to me as long as the parents know about it.

Barb, you could even have the kids pick "cyber names" and have the cards addressed to them in your care...like
"Superman"
c/o Bar_bar
School Name
School Address

This way, NO name would be used....maybe that would help.
I bet the kids in your program would really enjoy a card exchange!

I'm glad to hear Robin will still be overseeing it and welcome Barbz, both of you will do wonderful

Barbz, thanks for that idea... one I hadn't thought of... hey the kids could have fun making names for themselves. LOL

I also found out today that my son's gf got a job there as well... the same hrs. working with the after school kids but the older ones.

if nothing else I want to exchange btw the kids at school, and hopefully be able to do it here as well.

Chynna was asking me if she got any pc's. I told her no. she wanted to know why? LOL
I informed her it summer, and asked if she wanted to take part in it again, her reply was "YES"..
so somehow I guess I will sign her back up in Sept as well, this will give us more times to work on doing pcs and I will keep them at my house for her, and send them off for her, but she has to pick and do the cards herself or I will pull her out.

thanks guys.. Looking forward to another great months of this

I like this idea but the whole idea of our kids exchanging names is so they can make new friends. I dont know how my son would feel talking to someone who only used a nickname like "superman".

It might be good to use a name for addressing the postcards or if he/she wanted to post a thank-you under bar_bar's name.
