Best Gift for Teachers Is Appreciation of Students

DEAR ABBY: We live in a small community. In its wisdom, our school board ruled: "In fairness to all families, NO child shall give gifts to any of his or her teachers." This was a blessed relief to those of us who couldn't keep up with the Joneses. -- AVID READER, WINTER HAVEN, FLA.
