really wasn't much...
started out in the cafeteria, an introduction to the school, a few rules, etc. the biggest thing was the school is part of a healthy eating district. i think that's great, especially after the crap they served at Z's old school. [their pb&j's weren't even made on real bread, they were made with graham crackers & were prepackaged!!!]
so, healthy eating, that's great right? yes
HOWEVER, the pendulum swings to the other side now....
no cakes, cookies, ice cream, candy or sodas are served by the school & are not allowed at the school.
not even for birthdays, they suggested a fruit platter!!! [sorry, just not the same as a deathbychocolate cake]
the principal said she's actually confiscated a cake before.
after that we went to Z's classroom for a talkin to by teach. she had paperwork handouts for all of us, which she also read to us. the main thing was she talked about how bad budget cuts were & how she needed all kinds of help, in the classroom, outside the class, even supplies [like paper, every kid was asked to bring in a ream of paper].
so i offered to help out on one project & also told her i could come in to the class if she needed anything. i plan on asking her for a parent/teacher conference once she's spent some time with Z & can give me some feedback about where he's at, what he needs help with & what i can do.
week 1 is done. on sat Z got up, got dressed & was getting ready for breakfast when i found him. he thought it was a school day although i had specifically told him the night before that it was a stay home day. he was really upset, but i guess that's a good thing. we'll see how he feels after week 2 & he gets homework!
