Soooooo, today was kindergarten registration day at Fairfax.
My PTA job doing outreach to the incoming kindergarten families required that I be there for the entire two-and-a-half hour event this evening. I oversaw an art project for the kids who came along with their parents, took families on tours of the building, and answered lots and lots of questions.
But I did not register my own child.
Of course, it’s not too late. I have all summer to register him at the Board of Ed should we change our minds. But for right now, as of this particular day, we will not be sending Austin to kindergarten next year.
Is it the right decision? Who knows. But I do know that it’s not the wrong decision.
