PTSA

Trying to be good, active parents of our Kindergartner, Mom and I went to the first PTSA meeting tonight at the school. (Toby is sick)
There were 8 people there.
Yep Eight.
As in 6 other people beside me and Mom!!!!
Where were the other parents?? Where were the Teachers?
All the new kindergartners at this school and *I* was the ONLY parent of the entire Kindergarten class to show up!!! I am so upset. This is supposed to be a Superior school with triple excellence this and that with Active Board classrooms and yadda yadda yadda-- I thought for sure we would have a huge turnout! We even showed up 20 minutes early to make sure we would get a seat! (that's funny, huh?)
The Principal was there (I really like her by the way) -- but none of the teachers came back and many of them live locally. Students are invited to attend so that no one feels the need to find daycare.
I am so dissappointed!
Anyway... the school's first fundraiser starts tomorrow--cookie dough. And it's the good kind-- already mixed, pre-portioned and flash frozen! Just pop them in the oven and bake when you are ready! So..if you are reading this and live near me, let me know if you would like to see the yummy brochure! All orders come with a hug and kiss from Spencer!

Toby didn't make it to his game tonight or to the PTA meeting. He has a bad sinus infection/head and chest cold thing going on. He went to the doctor today and got a shot in his patootie and then they loaded him up with prescriptions and a consult with a specialist to see about getting his tonsils and adenoids removed. Of course he has laid in bed all day and whined... men are such babies when they are sick.

Spencer and IV rode their motorcycles all evening. They are so glad that the evenings are finally getting cooler so they can put on their riding gear without having a heat stroke!

Okay! I'm off to watch Rockstar Supernova.....

Unfortunately it's the same everywhere Cassandra. I'm very active in our school's "Parent's Assoc.", but unfortunately it's always the same 6 or 7 people turning up to pack chocolates for the fundraisers, wrap presents for the Father's and Mother's Day stalls, help out with prep for concerts etc. etc. It's very frustrating that other parents don't want to help or "give" to their childrens education IYKWIM.

Unfortantly I havent experienced this yet, but I know that alot of people would appreciate the work and commitment that you put into the school, maybe they just dont show it like they should. But im very proud of you and im sure alot of other girls are as well, at least you know your making a difference for your sons education.

Ok, I'm gonna be the bad mom here - I HATE going to school functions. I don't want to take time out of my schedule for that. :D
