Confirmed SD will be in Kindergarten this year!
BM took SD to register for school on Tuesday. BM told DH that the principal and the board would have a meeting on Wednesday after they received and reviewed SD's file from her previous school then would call on Wednesday about SD being placed in first grade or kindergarten. Also, mentioned possible testing for placement. Yesterday after end of business day, DH followed up with BM to see if she had heard anything and she hadn't. Today DH followed up again with BM, who said "No, I am going to call." DH responded saying "Okay. Let me know what they say. I was going to call and follow up, but wanted to see if they had contact you first."
Don't you know, right after he said that, BM said "I actually missed their call. She will be in kindergarten."
DH and I are thrilled that the new school did not let BM push SD to first grade. I bet after seeing she missed 20 days of school, all the notes from the meetings, and anything else in her file from last year, they felt like everyone else except BM that SD should repeat kindergarten especially since it is a new school, new district, etc. Finally can close that chapter and hopefully shouldn't be much need for meetings outside of conferences. Hoping this is a much better year for SD and no need for 5:30 am meetings every month for us to attend.
