Back to SCHOOL NIGHT

Last night we went in and met all the teachers, saw the classrooms, and got a feel for the school.

I learned a lot, and I'm very excited about the fact that my kid's 5th grade math and science books are online any time I need them.  Her spelling words are on a national spelling site, and there's a geography study tool for her too.  Mr. Cost, her teacher, has a really great attitude about learning and independence.

The third grade classroom was awesome, and we all got a laugh over the fact that there's now a 5th ocean.  No really, did you know?  Yup, a 5th one - The Southern Ocean.  I'm old, apparently.

But the most important thing I learned in the 3rd grade class is...

G's teacher, Ms. Candy, is a runner.

Five oceans and only eight planets - the world is a different place than when I was a kid!
How exciting that you have a runner for a teacher!!

Sounds like that teacher was meant to be.

There's another ocean now? Holy crap. I'm going to have to do some brush-up reading to keep up with my son!
