Last night was the parents' meeting before Kindergarten Round Up testing. Yes, it's really that complicated.
Here you go:
Slide show of happy kids
You get nabbed by ladies at a table to schedule a time to have your child hazed, I mean tested by the school
Teachers introduce themselves
The glory of Begindergarten is preached to you. "It's the gift of a year, for students who need it."
You are then begged to not be picky and to please volunteer to have your child in afternoon Kindergarten.
A final note on how special of a mile stone this meeting is, a slide show, a Whitney Houston song.
Afterwards, there are two groups of people, the crying and the leaving.
I was in the leaving group this year. This is kid number 2 for me. I know my school is awesome, I know the teachers. I even knew enough to get there early so there would be seats left.
As for being begged to take afternoon Kindergarten, I am a rock, I will not cave. I actually have a plan for getting morning K, I am going to use Owen as a bargaining chip. Yep, I am going to plead for Pig 2 to be AM and lock in Pig 3 for PM Kindergarten 2 years in advance.
Hell, I may offer to run Kindergarten Round Up.
