Today...was a big day for us.
I turned in two (of three) applications for open school enrollment for Alex to attend Kindergarten this year.
Our neighborhood school...is not acceptable. It has very poor test scores and a mandatory NON-Competitive 6th Grade Science Fair. No one wins. Everyone gets a participation ribbon. In our opinion...this is ridiculous. iKeith comes from a long line of Science Fair winners and we're not about to stop with this generation.
We are hoping for one of 40-70 possible spots at an excellent charter school. A school where a C is 79-84%. YAY for competition and grading performance! There are approximately 270 children applying to this school. A lottery will determine who gets in.
Because our chances aren't that great...we're also applying to two other schools within a few miles of our house that have excellent test scores. I'm excited about all of the possibilities.
Open Enrollment began this morning and goes until January 24. iKeith is laughing at me because I insisted on getting the applications in today...when it's a lottery system and when the application was turned in has no bearing on it getting selected. This man doesn't understand me at all!
I recorded my journey this morning...for your viewing pleasure. Yes, I do need a haircut.
