Yesterday, filled with excitement and joy, I went to the open house at the school my son will be attending next year.  It’s a wonderful school and a great community and I am really looking forward to being a part of it for the next 9 years, from Kindergarten through 8th grade.

The principal talked to us ‘new parents’ about curriculum and special projects and hot lunch, the usual… And then she went through a typical day for kindergartners-

“Children can start arriving at 7:45am… and we officially start our day at 8am.”

  2. Oh I know! I dread this when the kids stop going to daycare (which is there for my convenience) and start school (which has rules and stuff).

  4. You rock MCT syndication writer wizard you! Congrats on your post getting picked up! And who knew that K started at 8 am in MoCo…Our school will start at 9 am and every school I’ve ever taught at has started well after 9 am. I feel your pain but at least you’ll have part of the afternoon left for the park. By the time Little Miss Techie gets out of K, it will practically be dinner time! :)
