I love my son's school, they always have happy little events going on and tons of participation from the parents too. It's a small school, but trying to find a parking spot within comfortable walking distance can be quite the challenge if you're not significantly early for an event (not that we would know about such things, mind you ;) ).
This morning was "Doughnuts with Mom Day" (they had "Doughnuts with Dad Day" last week but dad couldn't go, he has to be to work too early).
It's basically just a morning of donuts and juice (coffee for the parents) and reading. And it's fun. The kids get excited about it, and the parents always like a chance to participate.
I wish they did these kinds of things in the middle and high schools too, but I guess such things lose their luster of cool when the kids get older.
In any case, it was a nice way to start the morning. My son went a little overboard, bringing six books along, but that's okay, I like that he likes to read. ;)
