I gotta hand it to this school. This past Saturday there was a school garden initiative and not only was the principal there but so were about 30 other people (teachers parents and students). Weekends are sacred. For parents teachers students and the principal to show up to do yard work is really impressive. Teachers are serious about the academics and while I'm no fan of homework it is what it is. My kindergartner is reading so something is clearly working. My daughter had a bullying issue with another student and after I emailed her teacher not only was she on top of it but so was the counselor and the assistant principal. I received the most reassuring email from my daughter's teacher I can't even begin to tell you. I even forwarded it to grandparents who were as concerned about the bullying as I was. Long story short the problem is solved. It is an uneasy peace but it is peace nonetheless. The bottom line for me is that my daughter literally RUNS into school each day. As someone who never really liked school (I went to public and private) I find that the most amazing of all. Go Blanton Bobcats!
