Nope, you haven't already read this thread. It's ANOTHER "half day" for my 3 kids. Yet again, they have school from 8:30 to 10:45 am (I would like to meet the person in the district who decided this was a "half day." I want to be sure that he isn't the one hiring math teachers.)Then tomorrow evening there are PTC. I'm sorry. I know that conferences are exhausting; mine were last Thursday until 9 pm (after a full day of school, a doctor visit, and a visit home to get the kids set for dinner and the sitter.) But I'm willing to bet that standardized test scores would go up a bit if only the kids were in school a bit more.
