As part of my morning errands I popped into my son's school to talk to the principal about getting my daughter moved to that school for next year, her 2nd grade year. My thinking was to put her out of reach of her little bully. The school she's at now is doing all right, so far, about keeping them separated. But, I don't see that situation changing for the better any time soon. Besides, my daughter has been asking to go to her brother's school more and more lately.
Well the principal suggested moving her over during the Christmas Break. She could go into a 1st/2nd split class. I was only looking at NEXT year, and trying to figure out what I needed to do, and when, to facilitate the move THEN. This idea really appeals to me, but it's not a decision I make on my own.
I talked to my husband, and he kind of likes the idea too. This is not our decision alone though, my kids get to add their input too. We've got a little bit of time to think about it, and decide if we really want to do it.
I'm hesitant though. I don't really like the idea of moving her in the middle of a year, she seems to have a lot of friends in this class. On the other hand, she's so social, she makes friends wherever she goes. I WOULD have both kids at the same school, which would be nice. We could completely avoid one school and not have to deal with ANYONE there anymore. I like the philosophy of the principal at my son's school a little better than the one at my daughter's school.
What would y'all do? Move, or not move?
EDIT (12/10): I guess I misunderstood the principal. I went in Monday to ask about paperwork, and she was surprised I wanted to do it NOW. There really isn't space right now. But, if I wait for Open Enrollment in January I shouldn't have a problem getting her moved for next year.Answer Question
