First off, thanks for all of the cool connections for a public backer of a UPromise account. It looks like I have the ideal person and I’ll be posting about it soon! Also, a shout-out to Franscesca who recommended UPromise quite a while ago. I don’t know why I didn’t pick-up on it sooner.
Second, I have officially released myself of any moral or other pathological guilt related to where Jacket goes to Kindergarten. Private school application time has essentially passed and I’m not going to mention charter schools to Jacket’s mom again. Jacket’s mom knows I’m invested and interested in helping her get Jacket registered for school. I’ve given her all the info she needs. I’m just going to sit back and watch Swamp People now (I’m OBSESSED these days). I assume Jacket will attend the local public school, that is, if her mom gets her registered.
But, I have to admit, I DO have a plan for when Jacket arrives in public school next year. It’s my current dream to be able to say to her teacher “Tell me what supplies and materials you need. Name everything you want for this classroom. The sky’s the limit. I will work to make it happen”. Wouldn’t that be amazing? I know that this essentially happens in the Brooklyn Heights public schools…but definitely not in Jacket’s neighborhood.
