Last night was Open House for Logan's new school. After being super lucky at finding a parking spot (it was raining), we went exploring. We bought a spirit shirt and then we found his classroom. I don't like that there's no roofed walkway to it though. Are they going to make them run thru the rain to get to the lunchroom? Or am I going to have to go find a rain coat? I wouldn't even know where to look! We've never owned one.
His teacher was very nice. We were the first ones there. Logan picked out his seat for Monday morning and we talked a bit. Logan explored his new classroom and seemed to get pretty comfortable. He started talking the teacher's ear off at one point. I learned that all gates are locked to the school during the day and the teacher's door is locked at all times too. Sounds like good security. She also carries her cell phone on her at all times.
Afterwards, we went over to the Media Center to take a look around. We talked to the librarian a bit and I was dismayed to find out that there are no strings(violin, viola, etc) classes anymore! I hate budget cuts! We also walked over to the music room where the kids- starting in 1st grade- can learn to read music, play the recorder (not looking fwd to that! LOL) and sing in a chorus.
Before we left for home, we stopped by the lunchroom so he could peek in the window. It's so small! Much smaller than I remember.
I'm so excited for him yet so sad that my baby is off to kindergarten already. Less than 3 days left....
