And boy, oh boy. Is he in for a shocker in a couple weeks.
The pre-school he is enrolled in right now is a 4 day a week, 1/2 day program.
We carried his IEP over from Massachusetts and got him into the Speech Program
here. Trouble is - he is right there. Right there in the sense that he doesn't
really need the services anymore. But anyone on a current IEP knows -
you don't close that thing out unless you are 100 percent positive
you won't need it anymore.
So we have a meeting next week with the school to determine
if he will continue to qualify. A gut feeling is telling me no. So I
did a little homework and found out that Connor's school,
which will be Garrin's school for Kindergarten in August....,
has a preschool program there.
Now while Garrin's talents are surely not to be missed -
He has conquered the Master of The Element of Water,
AND the Master of The Element of Fire on Club Penguin...
he is still not reading very much. This preschool is formatted more
toward Kindergarten readiness than the speech program.
And truly, I do not feel like I want my kid taking up a space
in a special ed program that could go to another one that would
REALLY need it.
So here is the kicker. I was so excited about
ALL DAY KINDERGARTEN?
Well...this is ALL DAY FRICKEN PRESCHOOL.
Right up the street.
Right next to Connor's classroom.
There is no question that he is ready.
Oh, and he won't have to get up so early.
That's probably a good thing!
