As I arrived at a middle school a few days back I couldn't help but notice that the students who were being dropped off look rather unique. There was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, several black cats, Raggedy Ann, cowboys and cowgirls, Superman, Batman, Captain America, Sponge Bob, and many others getting out of vehicles and coming inside the building.
