Monday, Monday

Rooster's Day:
1. It's the fourth day of school and so far the aide his is guaranteed by his IEP has not appeared yet.
2. His after school aide could not come today so he did not do his homework until he got home with us at 6:30 and he was TIRED.
3. His principal called to let us know that they are reorganizing second grade. Tomorrow he will have a new teacher. Not the wonderful Mrs. Y who sent us the sweet and warm email, to whom I sent a gift card to Baskin Robbins because she said ice cream is her favorite thing; no, he will not have Mrs. Y, who has many years of teaching experience and a great profile on the web site. No, the principal didn't care that Roo had three first grade teachers at his OLD school, because I am quite sure she wishes we had stayed there. Remember, she was forced to take our boy, after rejecting "another kid with autism."
4. He told us that in the bathroom during after school care two boys teased him. One pushed his face into the wall, while the other threw paper towels at him. A third boy stood there with a cell phone, watching.

Peaches' Day:
Peaches has had remarkably poor behavior at her new after school program. When I picked her up today, I asked the teacher, "How was today?" He shook his head. "Well," he said, "Friday was good. I hope your husband told you I said that when he picked her up Friday. Today, though, she got in a full-fledged brawl, pulling hair and rolling around on the floor."

My Day:
I'm posting an ad for babysitters. See above.

Your day?

So, so, sorry to read about the teacher change. It is unfathomable to me that any principal would do a re-org after the school year has commenced. Ridiculous!
