On the verge of summer
As you may (or possibly may not) have noticed I’ve been largely absent for a month. The blog and my Blackberry got disconnected and I realized it was good for my mental state not to be reading a CPSO comment every 5 minutes throughout the day.
I’ve been focusing on some personal life stuff along with the school musical (the ability of a drama teacher to coral 70 kids into an engaging and impressive show is mind-boggling to me) science fair (probably the nail in the coffin for academic center admission) and… lice! Yes, those little buggers have made a comeback after several years (likely musical-related given the close proximity of the 70 kids.) I’m also pondering why a child waits until 10pm to say “my head is itchy, can you take a look?” Sighhhhhh….
I’m ready for summer and lack of homework and lunch-making. As I said EVERY summer, my kid needs some math practice and instead of doing the slacker version of mommy-math, I’m going to inquire about Kumon to make sure he’s up to speed in the fall. The RGC math continues to move really quickly and it’s easy to get behind once the concepts ramp up.
So with the year winding down, I’ll be back to making some more regular posts. I have a shiny new subscription to the NYTimes, so I can post some good education articles over the summer that we can discuss.
And let me know if there’s anything else, CPS-wise, that is worth some discussion. The summer is usually a slower time here with CPS postings, but also a good time to talk about more theoretical stuff. And I’ll try to plan a little get-together for some wine and talk this summer if anyone is interested.
See you back in the comments section…
