in K and 1st grade I kept everything my son did, than after it got too be too overwhelming I decided to just keep stuff for that school year than toss it.
I do keep for him report card, certificates, note/postcards from friend/teachers, pictures, some drawings, writings, but everything else goes at the end of the school year.
My mother passed away when my siblings and I were in our 30's and 40's and she had kept everything from elementary to high school for all 8 of us. Packed in many boxes.
We had many laughs and tears going thru it all but at the end we chose not to keep any of it, since we do not have a way to organize it or time to devote to organizing it all.
How much of your children's school work do you keep and for how long do you keep it?
