Her school only goes up to 3rd grade & she is in 3rd grade. So, they are having what they call a "moving up ceremony" for the third graders who will be going to the new school next year for 4th & 5th graders.
Well...back in January, my husband bought our plane tickets to go to Boston the Friday right before memorial day (to visit family & do some vacationing) . The tickets were wicked cheap comparably to the usual price & it also fits our schedule perfectly. He totally didn't even think about the last day of school when buying these tickets, he just jumped on them.
Anyhow, that is the last day of school & DD will be missing the ceremony. The teacher has asked countless times if we could change our ticket dates.....which we're not doing, that would cost us nearly 200 per ticket...
I don't think it's such a big deal. It's 3rd grads...she'll still have 5th grade, 8th grade & 12 grade to "graduate" from & go to a new school the next year.
Am i a terrible mom for making her miss the last day? It's not like she will be missing any academics. How would you respond to the teacher who is obviously really bothered that she is missing the last day...
