Yesterday Adam registered for kindergarten. Where has the time gone? Come August 5th Germantown Elementary School won’t know what hit them. Parents, educators, and concerned citizens may not know how the unified school district will play out….it doesn’t matter. He can attend a Shelby County school. He can attend a Germantown Municipal school. He can attend a Unified School District school. Call it what you will. All that matters is the fact that he’ll be attending a school with the coordinates of 35.09 N, 89.79 W that is located in Shelby County in the great state of Tennessee! It’s nothing short of a miracle that my son is home where he belongs. So many people worked tirelessly to get him out of California and I’m eternally grateful. We’re reunited and living in the Memphis area. I could not ask for anything more.
Luckily I’m off the day of the first parent meeting. Being an involved mother– both in and out of the classroom– is imperative. Such opportunity was consistently denied to me in California and it’s not something I take for granted. You can bet I’ll proudly join the PTA and volunteer for school activities as often as I’m allowed. Go Cardinals!
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
