Did you read the letter that got sent home?

Yesterday was Kindergarten orientation. I’m reserving all comments, because right now, they’re totally clouded by the fact that I’m not sure what to make of the school, ect. Lots of things to really take into account, and I’ll have a better idea of what I’m handling and dealing in by the end of next week. But, I do have to say that the classroom teacher emails back FAST! That’s one point in their favor there…but I digress.

When we got the notice for Kindy orientation, there was a whole section about how not to bring siblings, because this was a time for parents and their kindergarteners to really get to know the room, meet a few people, ect. For cripe’s sake, this was done in groups of 5-6 students at a time. So, this truly was small group stuff.

Well, in wanders this one mom and her Kindy kid…and TODDLER SIBLING IN TOW! Oh, my. Lovely. Mom lets little one run roughshot and allows her to get into the dramatic play area, ect. My highly distractable child was quite the picture trying to get over there when there were things to be done. ARGH. But, he did it, and did it semi OK.

I know all about no babysitters. I know. But if there is a specific instruction NOT to bring siblings, ect, it’s there for a reason. For cripe’s sake, one family sent GRANDMA with the kiddle because she couldn’t make it. Argh.

I just wonder if some parents don’t even read what gets sent home.

    Unfortunately I am not shocked. I was surprised the number of parent that brought their kids to back to school night!
