Chalkdust Torture

Some of you remember in the past I have posted about J, TB's frienemy. At the end of the year last year, things were total madness. I talked to the K teacher and the principal and requested that they be seperated for this year. The teacher agreeed with me and also talked to the principal about the situation. J's mom mentioned it but I don't know if she actually talked to anyone about it or not. We were all pretty much on the same page about the boys needing to not be together this year.

This year, in a twist, they decided not to post class lists, instead mailing out the assignments to each parent and you get to be surprised on the first day of school (tomorrow, which is insane, isn't still like July). As soon as I got our assignment, I emailed J's mom to find out who he got. The next day she emailed me and told me that they got the same teacher!! :( The teacher they got also happens to be brand new. I was excited about that, because new teachers have to get burned out, they have more energy, etc. They also have more chaos and a looser structure. Could go either way on the good bad scale LOL

I immidiately fired off an email to T, the principal (Libbygirl thought it was funny that I was on a first name basis with him),not really expecting a response because it was Sunday. Much to my surprise, I got a response less than an hour later. He told me he remembered the conversation and would review the class lists first thing Monday morning at his office to see what we could do about it.

I called him that afternoon because I hadn't heard and he said that he did get TB moved to Mrs. C's class!! I didn't know anything about her, because we had gotten Ms. M's letter, telling us about her. We went by the school yesterday to see if we could meet her, or at least see the classroom. As it turned out, she wasn't there, but her lockers were all labelled, acting as a very nice class list :) So now I know who all is in his class and the class next door (Ms. M's class was labelled also). I also know that his classroom is the ONE with the air conditioner this year. Last year, his K teacher had it, now his first grade teacher has it. He is going to get spoiled and be mad when his class doesn't have it, eventually.

Hope everything works out! Is everybody ready for the first day of school tomorrow? I have worked at schools and not been on a first named basis with the principal, so I that's why I thought it was so funny.
