Advice on gift’s

I came across this sign on my local rail network in Liverpool, England, UK, a University town! How ironical! One of my many questions for this sign is why is there no apostrophe in the word “sweets”?

School is Calling all Dad’s…Calling all Dad’s

Unfortunately, this is from my children’s school. I have offered many times to help write and edit content coming from this school and have been told that my help is not needed (I am a lowly professional technical writer, not an all-knowing academic, so my opinions and offers of help are considered beneath them). Well, now it’s time for a public shaming.

At least be consistent?

Either it’s “its” or it’s “it’s,” guys.

A little consistency along with my delivery?
