    It's official. DS5.5 (wow that was a quick .5) got permission to enter first grade early. That's one less thing to worry about!

    The school board meeting was pretty interesting. 45 minutes to administriva, 10 minutes voting, 15 minutes mad parents/residents. I might go to the next one wink

    Champagne, anyone? It's Thursday evening. In college, that was when the drinking began, so why not the virtual drinking! I'm buying the first round!

    Congratulations, JBDad! Hopefully this will allow other GT kids early entry in your district. I have attended our school board meetings and they can be boring or very informative depending on what's going on in the district.

    That is wonderful news, JB!!!

    I hope DS has a terrific year and really enjoys first grade. Keep us informed of all the new developments. Do you know who his teacher will be yet? Any feel for what he or she is like?
