So tonight we went to a park here in Provo and did a potluck picnic with all the other families that also go to Freedom Academy in Provo, Utah. Along with the picnic was also the chance to meet the teachers of our children. Luckily we were able to meet all the teachers that will be teaching my three girls. This school is in the process of building a new building and is currently under construction. So many things have happened lately that I'm not sure if I should be irritated or just say "that's OK".
Here's the shortened condensed version:
PLANNED : First day of school scheduled for Tuesday Sept. 4th, 2007 at the new location.
ACTUAL : First day of school for my kids will now be Sept. 5th, 2007 at the old location.
WHY #1 The school has run into problems with getting the easement for power, from the city, to the school. So for now it has set back the move for at least two weeks.
WHY #2 The old location has been subleased to another charter school but now all of Freemdom Academy's students can not be at school at the same time. The other school will use all the classrooms upstairs and then Freedom will use the classrooms downstairs.
PLANNED: Start school on Sept. 4th and attend every day!!
ACTUAL : In order to accomodate all involved students in K-3 will go to school M, W, F and students in 4 - 8th grades will go T, TH, Saturday (8th) so by the end of the first two weeks every student will have put in 5 full days of school.
PLANNED: The last day of school is the Friday before Memorial Day.
ACTUAL : In order to get the right amount of time in we will extend the school year by one week at the end of the year.
-- So after the picnic in the park we drove by the construction site and have seen the progress, and it still looks like it is a long way from being done.
PLANNED: The big move from the old location to the new is scheduled for Sept. 15th or at least that weekend.
This summer has been long and my children are now begging to go to school and I'm more than ready for them to go back. I believe that they have become bored, and are running out of ideas to keep them entertained and active.
