It’s so good to be back here! The kids are at school and now I can focus on getting back into the groove.
I recently received and email from our school district’s coordinator giving me my meeting dates. Next Friday is our first one of the year! I am so excited and will start planning over the weekend, as my daughter will want to help me with this.
We meet in our school’s Art Room, immediately after school on the first and third Fridays of the month. I arrive about ten minutes before the bell rings to unlock the door (I need to go to the office to get the keys from the secretary and then return them) and then put all of my supplies in. Then I wait in front of the office for my girls.
I am a familiar site in my school, and I have always offered our services to the teachers, but to date I have had no takers. It’s a shame, as I want my girls to contribute to the school in other ways, and they really want to help! Maybe the fifth grade teachers will want some extra hands. I will have to ask next week.
Our meetings is about 90 minutes, including a brief snack that we eat outside in the hall. The girls know that meeting in school is a privilege that can be taken away if we do not treat the room properly.
I know of troops in other areas who have to beg for space or even rent it out. I am very luck my Service Unit does this work for me. I will in no way let them down.
So my questions for you are:
When do you meet?
How often do you meet?
Has the time increased as your girls have gotten older?
