Weird question... would said goofy child have by chance just finished kindergarten at Lapham elementary? Matthew claims to have/have had a girlfriend named Hari, and well, it's not that common of a name.

Goodness, my daughter gets around!

Yes, H. just finished kindergarten at Lapham. She says she had a little friend at her afterschool program named Matthew who sat by her a lot.

*waves*

hahaha! that is awesome! *waves back*

speaking of afterschool program - i don't know if you had heard a group of CASPER parents are going to the school board meeting on monday at 6 to protest the whole stinking red caboose consolidation move. please join if you're mad about it too, and if it doesn't effect you, ignore this little speech. :)

sorry for using you lj for my own purposes, abm. you're a peach.

I didn't realize there would be a meeting of the school board, and if I weren't driving H. back to her father's, I would totally attend. I'm not sure I am happy about the fact that we're being forced to use what seems like a more expensive program.

Basically we're trying to stop the move before the final approval of the appropriation of the funds. In addition to being more expensive, especially during the summer, there's a whole host of other problems regarding finances, curriculum, and the way this was hidden intentionally from parents until it was a done deal (they threatened casper staff with termination if they mentioned it to parents). And it's not saving the school district any money, either.

I don't really think that we'll keep CASPER running, but I do want the school board to know that just because the program is geared toward low-income kids that the parents are unwilling or unable to advocate for what's best for our kids.

Ah...I did not know any of these things aside from the fact that the move was presented by fiat, and it made me a little annoyed. If you guys had a petition, I would totally sign it, since I can't be at the school board meeting.

I'm going to try to have something ready for parents to sign tomorrow at summer care - I don't know if your daughter is going to that or if there's a way to catch you otherwise.

If you tell me when you'll be there, I can come over to sign it. H. lives with her father in the summer, but won't be going back until 6. Let me know?

I'm going to leave it there all day until about 5:30... summer CASPER is located at Emerson Elementary.

I will totally come over! Thanks for the intel.
