An old Yiddish expression when sending a kid to Cheder – “lernst flassig!!” There’s no really good English translation for flassig. Some have the minhag to add on “un gei tzi deh toilet…” – which doesn’t need translation.

Sorry for my tzi & Tzu mix-up – hard to express oneself in Yiddish typing in english…
