  1. That’s the digital handbook but they didn’t upload one for this school year so shift everything over one day or in the case of Thanksgiving I guess it’d be Nov. 25-29.
  2. It may not be standardized tests, but they do have some tests this time of year. I found the calendar. I upped my medication last night. Dh is extremely stressed about his school and I asked of he should take a semester off. They made him do a group project this week and his group didn’t respond in a timely manner to him and one person didn’t reply at all. I searched the start times for PreK. He could drop dd off before work without shifting his schedule. They serve breakfast at 7:10 am and their day begins at 7:40 and ends at 2:50. I could pick her up. I have to wait til Monday to talk to the right woman about their available slots in the spring.
  3. Would have been better if they bought more than one item from my consignment store drop off I did while I was out yesterday. I tried to leave the rest behind for the donation place they work with but they said oh no we don’t do that. That’s only if items don’t get claimed after we appraise them. Our Goodwill will not allow drop offs after hours and most of the American Vet clothing & shoes bins are overflowing. I’ll hopefully get the items out of my car this week. Ds did 2.5 pages of math and some ELA. He didn’t do all the pages but spent over an hr on ELA. I’ll try to make our check list with every math page today do that we can see our progress and check things off. The library is extending hours!! I just found out today. There’s some new money allocated to it. Not full hours each day but 4 days instead of 2. The story hour they had was at the elementary school today so I’m not sure we would have been welcome to attend. The clerk was kinda oblivious. She didn’t know where they had moved the children's dvds and had no idea hours were changing. I said this is the flyer with the new hours (given to me in city hall) and I let her keep it after I took a pic. I’ll ask the librarian if those hours started. if we don’t start the school day in the morning I think we screw up our whole day so I’m aiming to do that tomorrow, too.
  4. Ohh good point. I hadn’t thought about that. I’m not sure.
  5. Ds woke up early, showered, unloaded dishwasher abc is doing ELA pages I cherry picked from the book we own. We’ll make it work, at least for the remainder of this semester. 🙂 I got up early and went walking before the kids got up/Dh went to work. dd is driving us nuts. She’s a ball of energy. We did some “school” in her PreK book. It’s not all academic. She was just humming and singing, “I’m a mermaid. I live in dirty water.” I’m about to take her to the public library to pick up her “Mac and Cheese” book (it’s a series). She doesn’t like the local library much because it’s not “fun.” There’s no train table, etc. like some of the others. I’ll double check the story hour schedule. It always changes and they never update the website. The library is open 2 days a week. The last time I spoke to the librarian she said they are trying to do it more frequently like maybe twice a week. That would be great for dd. Ds doesn’t have to come. I fixed the whole flex card issue, got Ds his prescription last night and ran a ton of errands minus the book store. I instead spent money on a ladies’ painting night for myself (less than $15, all supplies included, later this month). Dd is such a card. She accidentally groped a woman in Sam’s club (running her hands along anything in her path), stepped inside the cooler (yes, I told her she can’t do that), and blurted out what the prescription was for. I can’t take her anywhere lol I will look more into khan and the other links. Thank you. Sounds good.
  6. Yes, things like that are fine. I just need guidance like a check list/syllabus. He’s been assigned to read something and summarize it this week.
  7. We don’t own the teacher copy of WWS which is needed and discussed in this thread and another I created. We will try the stuff we own but when we went through pages before it was not worth our time to make him do busy work. I’m not a fan of assigning things just so I can say he did ELA pages. You know, like yet another fact vs opinion worksheet or plurals for words like “fox.” We weeded out a lot of pages like that. I do own grammar reference type books but I was focusing on writing. One grammar book does have some assignments so we’ll see what we can do. He’s covered outkines in WWS and with me with Treasured Conversations. We’re going over research papers next.
  8. Yes, it’s an old meme and I think it was for hurricane survivors trying to protect their property from looters. But maybe not. I can’t remember. Not saying the typo was for “looters” but the intent was to keep people away.
  9. Paid $45 oop. Wrote a check. Now I’ll sort out the money thing if I can get there in time. Went through drive thru because kids are hungry but we didn’t spend much. Redeemed our “free” frosties, too. (discounted Boo book with 5 vouchers for $1). We will try to do both. School & chores. I’m not job hunting after this last batch I did. We called to ask if dd can rejoin the PreK list in another town. They said call back Monday to talk to so and so but as of now they think the current class is full and they may add another PreK teacher in Jan. Dh said he was willing to drive her if necessary and push his hours back but I don’t know. Dh thinks she really would thrive because she likes being around people. Ds and I are introverts and happy with periodic outings. He said he liked doing school with me in the library today. We just have to make that happen consistently. That was supposed to be my marriage counseling time slot. I’ll make him bring school to church some weekends for after Sunday school (we can lock up behind us and I have access to a key. No one at that church cares). ok now I gotta do a Walmart pick up order, visit flex spending people, mall pick up order (Christmas), and we’ll see if we can fit in B&N to browse the ELA. I have one check from my aunt I never cashed if I need it.
  10. Thank you. We’re waiting on tests at the dr office and because Ds didn’t feel well and my wallet was lost yesterday we couldn’t get much done while we were out. Now I’m stressing they’ll ask for my flex card that’s inactive because of the overcharge from my psychiatrist that they finally resolved. I have to physically give a check (or mail) to the flex people for the amount and cash the check the psychiatrist gives me when I stop at their office after I leave here. Maybe they will just mail me a bill and I won’t owe anything today.
  11. The school is supposed to do a placement test with new kids but they never did one when he entered 5th. They might, however, make him do whatever the other kids do. I guess you could call that an assessment. I don’t think this will really impact anything.
  12. You are assuming it’s lesser stress. I don’t believe he feels that way. The house is getting better. Ds and I met one-on-one at the library this morning. Now we are at the dr. Dh and I have not been fighting. School routine did nothing for him the 2 years he went to brick & mortar. He woke up tired and came home exhausted. Granted bedtime affects it all but it affects it with or without school. You’re tired whether you go to the living room or bus if you didn’t sleep enough. Teachers would probably not appreciate trying to catch up Ds with their routines and whatever they were studying. When he did iready language arts he got up to 7th grade level in his 5th grade classroom while many of his peers were anywhere from K-2nd grade on the low end and things in between 2nd-7th. That’s his account, anyway.
  13. It’s November. They get a week off for Thanksgiving and two weeks off for Christmas. There will be testing days, too. So enrolling now seems like it would not be good to our family. But hey if it was your kid by all means enroll them for 3 weeks of a semester.
  14. Well when I made this thread I thought it was for voters because I read it at a glance and only saw “no facial piercings” and “no tattoos.” THAT is why the word interns matters. Most people are not reading it in full if at all I think. Instead of “Reminder” maybe it should say “Attention: Interns.” As far as I can tell we never have interns at our polling station. The sign was not up at the last election or two, either. I voted in a run off and it wasn’t posted.
  15. So next election I’ll send Dh in there with low hanging pants and I’ll sport a Mohawk and update you guys. I’ll also legally change my name to “Intern.” 🙂
