Last night was Open House at the elementary school where I am doing the program. I copied the parent letter and contracts to hand out to the parents and kids. I, actually, stayed in the library for the whole time. Mrs. Langley and Mrs. Ehret handed the papers out in their classrooms, which made it much easier for me to not be in two classrooms at once! Alicia helped me make signs to put up in the classrooms which read "Come into the Library and talk with Hannah about the READ Program" or something along those lines. Unfortunately, only one parent came to talk with me. However, she signed up for it on the spot even though it isn't due back until next Tuesday! I was joking that I should frame it because it is the first sign-up! Lol!
I understand why a lot of people probably didn't have enough time to talk with me about it. Chances are they didn't have time to read the letter until they got home. The teachers said that they are willing to remind the students and parents about signing up because they are as excited about this as me!
Anyway, I would say it went well. I know of at least one other family signing up. They visited my mom(she's a kindergarten teacher, so all of the kids I will be working with had her last year and already know me) and told her that they were definitely signing up for it, but they didn't have time to do it right now. So, that's exciting....
Time is always the issue, isn't it?! Don't I know it....lol! Today, mom and I are trying to get to the bottom of what we think is a flare-up that I'm having with the rheumatoid arthritis. I have a lot of cold-like symptoms including a headache nonstop for a week now : / Anyway, hopefully we'll have some answers by the end of the day.
