This is just a reminder for all parents of kids in school - you can make a difference!
I have a 4th grader and 2nd grader (and preschooler). Overall I have been pretty happy with how their school experience is going. There are things (just like any place) that i wish were better but I have always taken the approach of just sitting back and sometimes complaining.
I really realized this week - that I can't sit back and complain in the background. I need to go to school meetings to see what plans are. I need to advocate for my children if the need be. I need to be involved. I try to go into their classrooms to help but it is really hard (with an almost 4 year old).
This week - my stepping up and speaking up - I made a difference in my son's school experience and I am proud of that :) :)
I also am going to help with the yearbook. Its not that I have extra time but its because I want to help be involved!
Feeling good and optimistic - now time for SPRING BREAK!!!
