Look what my 5 y/o nephew brought home from school yesterday

Posted by   + Show Post

Does anyone else think this is beyond inappropriate!?! I can't believe his teacher didn't know better from the start. They were rinsed but idk if that changes my opinion on this situation at all. My brother will be up there speaking with administration as soon as he leaves work today.. But I'm just baffled. WHO could possibly think that was a good idea!?

Smh.


ETA: it's just a little art project. But the class was using an assortment of alcohol bottles. Obviously nothing to SPAZ about. But I DO think it should be addressed. To me it's just not appropriate in a kindergarten classroom.


ETA2: I just thought the labels should have been removed as well. I have no other issues with them using the bottles. They were rinsed but a lot of kids know what the label is and a lot of kids don't because they have alcohol free homes. I think it's up to the parents judgment to decide when they want alcohol bottles around their children.

ETA3: the project had something to do with the book "whistling Dixie". I've never read it so I don't really know what the plot entails. I didn't really get an answer as to what the project is either since essentially they just put paper around bottles and colored them a little..

Also, the bottles were plastic. I didn't even think to ask him until someone else noticed it in the picture. Again, let me reiterate my stance on this.. I do not agree with the alcohol bottles being used WITH the labels still on them. I'm all for cheap art supplies for teachers and using recycleables, I just feel a little more preparation could have been done before they did the project. To each their own though and thankfully this one wasn't mine to handle. :) thanks for all the opinions ladies. Even those of you who contributed nothing but snarky comments, really thanks for the entertainment. Lmfao.

Oh & I am deffff not a crunchy mom but it's crazy how quickly some of you would assume that from one post!

They should have at least taken the label off the shot bottle before they gave it to kids.

The problem is he's 5 and shouldn't be subjected to alcohol bottles in a school. A little hypocritical with all their "just say no" and DARE concepts.

Also curious what the bottle was being used for... I wonder why she didn't use a plastic soda bottle instead? The bottles could have broken and cut one of the kids. It's just bad judgment all around.

LMAO!! Thats funny!
Its the opposite of what happened to my kids recently. They brought home a flier for a recyclables drive. "Please bring recyclables to school between date-date, procedes will be donated to *whatever* charity"

So, we sent our HUGE spare trash can, that is only used for aluminim cans. Well, the neighbors use it, we use it, my s/os parents send us bags for it all the time, and it was almost full. Been used for about 6 months....

it was all beer cans, and 1, 12pk worth, of cherry coke (mine, i hate beer). I cant imagine what the school must have thought when my kids brought that in haha
