Are you ready for the kid’s to go back to school? Our youngest, Eli, will start Pre-K this year. He only goes in the afternoon for a couple hours but it will be nice to have that time to myself. Although I will probably be lost as to what to do in the beginning. He will have speech three times a week in the mornings so we’ll have to work everything around that as well which can be difficult at times. I opted to have the speech sessions here instead of interrupting what little school time he will get this year. When he only goes for 2 ½ hours a day, a half hour of that time for speech can really make a difference and I don’t want him to miss anything important at school.
I have the first PTO meeting tomorrow afternoon for Samuel’s school. His is the only one that I really got involved in last year. I was the Box Tops Coordinator and plan to do the same again this year. Addison’s school has a PTO but it’s mostly comprised of staff and very few parents. I went to one meeting and felt like there were no volunteer opportunities since they didn’t open it up to anyone new so I never went back. I won’t get too involved at Eli’s school because he won’t go there for Kindergarten next year. He’ll ride the bus and go to Addison’s school. Our district doesn’t bus for pre-k so if you get them registered in time you get to pick which school they attend. I picked the one closest to us since I have to drive him and pick him up.
A plug for Box Tops, if you have an elementary age child please save those box tops and send them in on a regular basis. They really help schools earn money!
