Andrew and his best friend Owen were ready to be big first graders!
I cannot believe I have a first grader.
How does time fly like this?!
our first week of school has been extra stressful.
Because California is broke and our schools have no money,
just about all the kindergarten and first graders are in combo classes.
We were very happy that Andrew was placed in the first-second grade combo class, however the budget crisis has left the school with not enough teachers. Which means that Andrew's class has a substitute until they can find a permanent replacement!! NO TEACHER! Am I wrong to be pissed about this? For small children who crave routine and stability, I think it is terribly irresponsible for the school to leave this classroom to a substitute for who knows how long. We were mad. The principal was avoiding the parents and we still haven't got a lot of answers as to what's going on. All I know is that I am crossing my fingers and hoping for a great teacher as soon as humanly possible. The classroom is bare, nothing on the walls, and my child came out of his first day of school telling me that he hated the class and the teacher. Not what any parent wants to hear. :( Cross your fingers for me, too. Budget or no budget, they should have a teacher in there on the first day of school. Ugh! Frustration.
Here's to hoping each day gets a little better.
Enjoy your day, xo! :)
