"Did I miss Spectrum back to school night?" That is the program my daughter is in. If she were home I'd ask her. Its' true... my 10 year old remembers things like that. Which is why she is in a program like that :)
My second thought was..."Wait. When is Jr. High Registration?" That would be for my middle child. A fellow mom from the 'hood informed me it was last week. "Oh yeah?" I wondered... "Pictures too?" "Yup," she said. Luckily, the back to school night is tonight. My plan is to call the school today and find out what I need to do to make sure Little Duckling gets a locker and a schedule, etc.
The only reason my high schooler went to his registration and picture day is because the school emailed me. Now, THAT'S Smart!!! I mean, ALL three schools have my email address. That is how they chose to send out the newsletters last year. Y'know -- the whole goin' green thing.
So, why didn't they just send out the reminders via email too? Seriously -- I mean I get soooo much mail, that I usually end up throwing it in a pile and eventually going through it. Bills are on autopay, so I don't have to worry about those... and most of the other stuff is junk.
And surely they don't expect ME to go online as school gets closer to look at these important dates, do they? I mean -- surely I can't be the only slacker mom out there, right? The weird thing is, the jr high emailed me the registration forms at the end of the school year last year and I turned them all in at the orientation back then. So - again - why not just email me the info for the official registration date?
Then again... check out my email inbox...
So...um... yeah... I may just be a little behind on stuff :)
