I'm not sure how the conversation started.
Next year he will be in Pre-kindergarten.
His birthday is in June. Should we send him to one year of Pre-K, or two?
Perhaps one year at his current location, and one at what will be his kindergarten?
She does research.
Our school lines have recently been redrawn. The elementary which is closest is not where he would be assigned.
They rank 25th in the state. Out of over 1000 schools.
The one he will be attending, the one farther away, was 225th.
Decent.....but not 25th.
Can we appeal to get in?
There is yet another close by. Their test scores are off the charts.
Ah, a school for gifted students.
If it were up to the parents, this is where all the kids would be.
Curious. My elementary, in its small town rural setting.....996th.
I'm not the Amazing Kreskin, but I do predict an improvement there next year.
At the one he will be attending, (#225) city police shot a man with an AK-47 a couple blocks from it last week.
Somehow, all of this is too real.
I'm still wiping his butt for crying out loud.
We still have time.
Plenty of time.
We agree to put this aside for at least a year.
And simply enjoy this age while we can.
