Community Classroom is almost there

Keeping a "common" area free of junk is always a challenge. These areas become prime places to collect things you don't want to see on a daily basis yet you hate to throw away. The problem becomes the area collects too much junk, and while everybody will agree it's junky, nobody really feels comfortable throwing things away. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and what looks like junk to you or I might be a treasure to somebody else.

Enough weeding and pruning has been done in the Community Classroom what should not be there stands out more clearly and should be easier to send on its way. For bulky items, the storage trailer is a good candidate. Enough junk has been thrown away that we can comfortably walk to all parts of the trailer and get to the items that are there.

As for what DOES belong in the Community Classroom, let's be sure to put in where it belongs within that room. If one does not have time to return books to their proper place, it would be much better to hold those books in the room until there is time. Once a stack of books is dropped on a table in the Community Classroom, finishing the task is out of mind, and there is no trigger to remind the person to return and finish the job.
