Ok, she's registered in school. I need to make her an appt at the doctor's for a physical, and turn in the doctor's form to the school nurse by the end of September. Her teacher's name is Mrs. FitzPatrick. I was at the school for over 2 hour's. I had a talk with the head of the front office. I explained to her my fear's about putting Rebecca into that school, about any public school here in Philadelphia. I told her I am checking into private school's but there is a waiting list, and I am also thinking about homeschooling. She said I should give it some time. See if Rebecca likes going to school. I told her I know about the third grader who was caught with the gun last year. I see teens at the park across the street smoking pot and have pitbulls, this scares me that one can get lose and go after my child during recess. She then told me the school is now working under a no tollerance law. You mess up 1 time, your in school suspention for 2 days. Second time, it's 5 days suspended, third time you are expelled. Lockers are randomly searched, so are bookbags. Kindergarten kids are allowed regular bookbags, grades 1 to 8 have to have clear zipper bookbags so they can't hide anything in a regular bookbag. No big baggy pants with lots of pockets are allowed. It is school uniforms and pants have to fit properly. She said they are very strict on their dress code. Shoes are black dress shoes, and white sneakers. White cotton socks only. And uniforms are navy blue with white shirts only, for boys and girls.
Here is what Rebecca is allowed to wear.
The teacher that Rebecca will have will be calling me, for last minute details on all that Rebecca needs for class. When she calls I am going to volunteer myself for anyhelp that she needs, so I can spend lots of time at the school. At least until my nerves settle. Ever since I registered this morning my stomach has been hurting, like it's tight and tied in knots. Nerves? My daughter took a pic of me today. She said Mom, you look worn out and your eyes are so baggy. Thanks, Em, I told her, lol. So she took the pic so I could see what she was seeing.
Yep, baggy eyes and looking very tired. I decided I am not cutting my hair short again. I'm letting it grow long. Before chemo my hair was awful. Dull, frizzy, now it's shiney and wavey. I'm keeping it, lol. It's grown alot since it felt out and Emma shaved the rest off when I was doing the chemo. One more day of running around and I can rest this weekend. Tomorrow I have to take Emma to the doctor's. She should know tomorrow when they are doing her c-section. She better know tomorrow, otherwise my dark hair is gonna turn grey and I won't be liking that at all, lol. I don't have any grey hair and I plan to keep it that way, lol.
So, I will fill out private school forms and send them back to school when I get them. And over the weekend I am going to go through all the links a few of you sent me for homeschooling. I want to thank you for those links too. Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
