Summer School! (ESY)

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Maria started what I call “summer school” and what the school district calls ESY (Extended School Year). It’s free, but you have to qualify by demonstrating that you lose skills when away from school for long periods of time. Her first year she was in a class that was not a good fit (understatement). Last year, she had a great teacher and a great class. But unfortunately that teacher had knee surgery this summer, so she’s not teaching. Maria’s new teacher is Harley. I met him for a brief couple minutes the 2nd day of school and he seems ok. Just like a regular ol’ guy. Maria seems to like school, she’s been smiley.

Still working on getting everything to the camp people. gulp! As it gets closer, it’s more nerve wracking, but we can do it, right? There’s an open house at the end of the month that should make us feel a lot better. It’s going to be a lot of trips into the White Mountains this summer.
