Alright, I am so glad the end of the school year is coming. I get tired of complaining, but this has been one hell of a year. My poor son. alright, I know he isn't an angel and he's partially to blame for what is going on here. What do you do? the teacher is supposed to send home assignment sheets daily which is part of his IEP. We're not getting them. I don't know, maybe Tygen isn't bringing them home. That wouldn't surprise me either. I've asked several times for them to send me an e-mail so at least I get the information. I get e-mails when the teacher is pissed off. I think this would be easier than writing it out and I'd get them for sure. I'd love to have it out with his teacher anyway. I've never seen such a lazy butt in my life. Grandparent's day last Friday and both sets of grandparents said that she didn't introduce herself or move from her computer the entire time they were there. That's a great impression.
So today I did something I said I would never do. I wrote my letter to the school principal to request a teacher for next year. Our daughter's teacher is going to teach 5th grade next year and I want him to teach Ty. Mr. Berg is the only teacher I've known that has given out his home phone number and tells you to call even if it is in the middle of the night and you have questions, because that is what he is there for. Pretty amazing these days. I will be hand delivering the letter this afternoon.
Funny story to top this off. Every year on the last day of school I bring the teachers a pot with flowers in it. Lorelei spent days planting seeds and she knocked them off the counter the other day. So we went to have the kids each pick out a pack of flowers to plant in these bowls I bought. We get into the green house and my son looks me square in the face and says "do they sell weeds here"? I wanted to laugh but had to hold it in. No, they only sell plants. My husband whispered to me "yeah, stink weed". I looked at Nic and said "maybe the weeds that have those spit balls on them would be nice". At least we are all on the same page.
Better run.
Have a good one.
