I have lots to say and they probably all deserve their own post but I can’t gather the strength to think that hard so I’m just going to vomit everything up in one.
Let’s go back and update the old entries first, before I forge ahead with new business.
The Lynch Mob
As you will recall….there is a lynch mob trying to get our teacher fired. In early November the principal had a sit down meeting with our entire class to discuss our issues. Our only issue was that our son is rushed too much and we’d like her to slow down a bit. Other people had issue with things that were said in the parent/teacher conference. Like that after only 10 weeks of school…they were talking about holding their child back a year for being immature. The person that keeps having the biggest problem with the teacher. DIDN’T UTTER A WORD!
Then, at the November Accountability Meeting, this person brought an issue to the table that she isn’t allowed to just sit in the classroom and observe. She doesn’t like anything that the teacher is doing and wants to sit there all day. This is not allowed but we have ample opportunity to volunteer.
This same woman, called me every two weeks as soon as school started to tell me everything she knows/has heard about our teacher and none of it was good. I almost believed it all.
We have a meeting coming up next Thursday to address this issue and I’m prepared to go to bat for the teacher and the school.
Wish Me Luck!
The Holiday Party
The party went really well….even though I ended up offering to do too much and I was stressed beyond belief. The kids didn’t really eat the whole wheat bagel with cream cheese that Sporty Spice brought but they all loved the cookies.
DD (twins mom) tried to take over the party. She’s a former teacher and thinks she knows everything. I didn’t like the tone she was using with the kids.
All in all, it was a great party and kids had a great time!
The Facebook Group
Sporty Spice and I decided to start a Facebook group for our class and it’s been great! Except that only half the class has joined. But….that’s okay because the people that haven’t joined…I don’t like anyway.
Valentine’s Party Drama
I knew it was too good to be true. I attended the party meeting and all my favorite people showed up. Sporty Spice didn’t show up because she’s pulling her kid out of school for the week to go to Puerto Rico. This meant we wouldn’t have to serve red bell pepper to the kids and they could eat candy.
We made a plan and everyone agreed to do/buy/help out with things. We’re a well oiled machine by this time.
I got an email two days ago with the NEW AGENDA. Everything we discussed and agreed upon had been changed. The Mom in charge sited *experienced moms* for the changes. I was pissed because I recognized the extra person the email was addressed to as DD (twin’s mom). She didn’t attend the meeting…..and I wasn’t included in any emails about changes.
The Mom in Charge approached me today to talk about the changes to the party. She said that DD confronted her at school on Monday and asked what the plans were for the party and then had an issue with every single thing we planned. She insisted that Mom in Charge change everything.
Yesterday, DD approached Mom in Charge about what game she picked to play and now has an issue with that! Mom in Charge told her that SHE is now in charge of the game and to have at it.
God help me if DD’s kids’ are in Max’s class next year.
I got a phone call from Max’s Intervention teacher. He and the autistic kid are the only one’s still seeing her 4 times a week. She said she needed to have a meeting with us right away to discuss *where we go from here*.
Of course, Big Papa isn’t worried and thinks it’s just going to be more of the same. Sending more work and telling us more we can be doing at home.
I think that they are going to request that we hold him back and repeat Kindergarten next year. The reason I think that is….conferences aren’t for another month. They need to see us right away, because they just finished the *school lottery* and sibling enrollment and need to know if they need to hold a spot for him.
This is all speculation on my part.
