I went to a Board of Education meeting tonight, where I heard about the various budget cuts. They include a plan to combine 4th and 5th graders into one class, which will also increase class size from about 20 to about 27. Yowza. Honestly, I think that a combination class might be good for M, but the class size issue really irritates me, and. . . you know what, I’m just not going to start ranting. We’ll see what happens.
Meanwhile, M came home today toting cupcakes from her after school enrichment class on Greek Gods, which is taught by the lovely Pam of story time at the Mohawk Commons Barnes & Noble. I thought that they were super-cute and easily recognizable.
Just frosting, M&Ms, and strips that are reputedly from Sour Patch Kids, although I couldn’t find a link.
She’s liking the class very much, and they’ve even managed to suck her into the Percy Jackson books. Which I’m excited about, because I’m hoping that it will be a gateway drug to get her into Harry Potter. Cute W and I both love Harry Potter, and so far M’s resisted all familial and peer pressure. I don’t know why.
