Maddy and I went to school today for the Open Day. We met his 1st grade teacher, Miss Reeves who's been teaching at Stenwood Elementary for 4 years and has a Master of Science in Early Childhood Education. We visited his classroom, #19 and found his desk, labelled with his name and an information packet for the parents. We checked out the class list and found seven of his Kindergarten friends also in his class. Even though he was a little dissapointed that Annie, Nathan, Matthew and Danny were not in his class, I know it won't take long for him to make new friends. Besides they will still see each other during recess time and when we have play dates.
We also stopped by the Cafeteria to sign up for the PTA ($10 per member) and to find out information about Cub Scouts. Maddy is interested in joining the 'Tiger Club Den' for first graders. I spoke with one of the Scout Leaders to find out more information and even though it looks like he's going to have a lot of fun learning all about the environment, going on camps and doing community activities, a parent has to be there with him at every scout meeting and activity. It's a requirement for the 1st graders pack. I hope Daddy can take part in most of them, if not then I better get my drivers license (yes I do know how to drive but never held a license lol) as I don't like relying on others to get to places.
Since school doesn't officially start till next Tuesday (Sept 2nd), and it's a long weekend (labor weekend), I'm going to take Maddy for a swim at the pools, to visit the library and have a day out at the park.
