I'm hoping the optimistic part wins and I'm thrilled for all the good news on the board lately.

    Maybe it's all just progress, rather than false high hopes!! Do you think it's possible?? Tell me it is . . . .

    Wow. 9 HG kids and 2 teachers. DOK. That sounds awesome! It will be great, really. It cannot get any better, can it?

    Neato, that's great that they let you to hs your child for math. DD6 has a good teacher, it sounds like a very nice start.

    Well, I don't want it to be too misleading. It's not so much that they "let" me, it's more like they can't stop me. smile

    Legally, there is a certain amount of time I can take my child out of school and we do whatever I want. I could let her watch cartoons if that was my m.o.

    However, the principal has been really good about all of it. He could make things very difficult for me, which would ultimately be bad for DD8, no one wants that. I think that he does get how far ahead she is and that she likes math and to be challenged.
