Emmett and I met with the principal on Wednesday to begin planning for the rest of the school year and beyond. There’s no interest in a PTA, so Lizze and myself will be working directly with the school. Hopefully, others will join at some point but no one showed up on Wednesday.
What’s really cool is that Emmett and Elliott are involved in this. It helps the have a sense of ownership in the school and learn some behind the scenes stuff.
As I mentioned, it was just myself, Emmett and the principal on Wednesday. Lizze was home with Gavin and Elliott because Elliott had come home from school not feeling well. Otherwise, they would have been there as well.
One of the things we’re working on right now is fundraising and we have some great ideas. While I can’t talk about any of those things at the moment, I will say that Emmett contributed some amazing ideas. There was totally a sense of pride in him because he was being taken seriously by his principal and his ideas are going to help the school.
I’ve said it many times before but I’ll say it again. Our principal is awesome.
One of the things I’m doing right now is collecting items for a raffle that will benefit the kids and provide them with some special events towards the end of the year. State testing is incredibly stressful for our kids and we want to give them something to look forward to. ☺
I’ve already got some cool items and I’m waiting to hear back from a few companies.
Once I’m done, I’ll share a post with all the information and publicly thank these companies for their help. Some won’t be mentioned by name because they prefer to remain in the background and I respect that. ☺
Anyway, I feel really good about this with the school. It’s awesome to be working on things that will not only benefit my kids but also the other kids in the school as well.
Something else I’ve said many times but it can’t be said enough. I’m a firm believer that the more involved we are in our kids education, the better off they are. I feel like this is just the beginning of some awesome things for our school and the amazing kids that attend it. ☺
