Monday is the day.
The kiddos are heading back to school. I met most of them on Thursday during our Meet Your Teacher day.
If I was in charge of such things Meet Your Teacher/Parent Information-Back to School Night would all be at the same time… some evening before school starts. But I’m not in charge… so we’ll be having our parent information night in a couple weeks.
Meet Your Teacher at our school is not really a day. It’s about an hour. Where I sit outside in the 90 degree sunshine and the kiddos and their parents wait in line so that:
- We can introduce ourselves to each other
- I can ramble at 100 miles an hour about a few of the important first day things they should know
- I can give them their packet of paperwork that needs to be completed, a first day guide and a welcome to first grade note, and a little Sunday night poem and glitter treats.
- I can say, “See ya Monday, Sweetie”
