Repeat Offender. We had a Painted Square. Anyone remember the TV show Recess? They had an episode about this type of punishment. Actually, I think what made it most effective was they made us face the playground the whole time watching other kids play.
Totally agree. It was even worse when you can see them, but can’t join them!
grate = prison
I sometimes pass that old school. The playground that used to house the square is now just a space between two buildings. The new one sits on the far end of the other side of the school. But I don’t know if there is a square anymore.
It’s amazing how much things change and how time just overwrites the past. The only school that’s still standing that I attended is my High School, and that was completely redone.
My High School Building is long gone. 2002 was the last class to graduate. Now its an empty lot.
