Talking about Little Red’s schools is going to take many, many posts. I hardly know where to start. I had so much anxiety about starting, and was more ready to pull out than to go through with it come the first day of school.
But when I prayed I knew it was the right decision for right now. And every day that I drop him off and pick him up I get another confirmation that I made the right decision. We have had a lot of opposition regarding this decision, and many people have taken it very personally. I am so grateful to know, ever day, that I made the right decision. That’s all that matters.
It’s a school that treats every child as gifted, instead of using enriching materials only for those who have tested as gifted. It’s a school that supports a real feeling of community. It’s a school immune from so much of the political nonsense in the district. It’s a school where you can tell the teachers and staff really love their jobs and love being there.
It’s a small school in a lower-income neighbourhood. We don’t have the same funding as larger schools or those in more affluent communities. Fortunately, Care2.com, greatschools.net, and Target have teamed up to give one deserving school $20,000! Please vote for our school and ask all your friends and family members to do the same — anyone over 13 can vote!
Vote early. Vote often. Thank you.
