My oldest 3 don't have them now...but I used to try to go to most of them...My youngest is Autistic and if I go...we have found...he has a melt down when I leave and can't take him with me...so I no longer feel its a good idea to go :(

I try to make it to one a year for each kid. This year I did projects with them the day before Christmas vacation............... I work full time so its hard to get out and split myself between the 2 kids.

The pre-school does not have parents attend the parties, but occasionally they will do a 5 to 10 minute program (sing and dance) for the parents for holidays like Halloween, Christmas, Valentines day and Easter.

The Kindergarten oly let 5 moms attend, and you have to be signed up, and apparently the sign up sheet was up the day before school started, and I never knew about it.  UUGH!  I did get one of the moms to add me to the list for the Christmas party, but who knows if I'll get on any more.  I noticed most of the moms that got on the list have had older kids in the school already, so that is how they knew about the list.  I think it would be nice of the school to walk us firt timers through it a little better!

Due to there being so many parents the teachers divide up a list and the parents are told which party they can attend. So no not all the parties. BUT before this new rule I used to attend them all. Even if I had to bounce around during the day room to room.

We only have preschool potlucks right now, and I go to almost all of them. It's important, and it gets me out of dinner at the IL's, 'cause they're usually on Sunday. LMAO!!

No, I am not b/c I work. I only work 4 days a week, but even if there is something on my day off, I would have to drag my 3 y/o and 7 month old and, if you knew my 3 y/o you would understand that is just too much!
