    My 12 yo brought home a brochure about school rings! LOL Sure enough they are class rings, similar to the high school rings. They seem to be less expensive, starting at $85 and going up to maybe $100. But, really....who wants to remember middle school??? LOL

    LOL, my daughter got a necklace instead of a class ring last year. I told her if she bought the ring I would pay her back (somehow) but she opted to skip it. The reality is mine is in a box somewhere and hasn't been worn since my senior year probably so I think she made a wise choice.

    As for middle school, I think most people try to forget that even more than they do high school. I know middle school was miserable for my daughter. I moved around alot when I was that age, so it was no picnic for me either.

    Fortunately, Neal has no interest in one. But you know there are going to be some kids begging for them and some parents who just think it's the coolest thing. Ugh. Why are people wasting money on stuff like this?????

    at my kids school the 8th grade class gets a prom and a middle school ring... i think that is the weirdest thing ever... just another excuse to make you spend more money.

    the worst part is that parents go with it, and then the ones that don't are the cheap ones that don't want to make their kids happy...

    whatever happened to leaving all that stuff for seniors (12th grade)?

    I still have nightmares about middle school. lol... it's the LAST thing I want to remember... just like all these extra graduations they've added over the years (remember when you only graduated when you were actually DONE?) Money-making scheme. psh.
