We are moving this year. (transfering...military)

If you are moving then legally you can pull your kid out of school May 3rd. (Here anyways)


Anyways ds is in kinder. Last week we got his certificate sent home in his folder saying he is done. That Since kids are moving they dont learn anything else the rest of the yr. So basically Im sending him to hang out all day which I dont mind. What pisses me off, is all the kinder teachers decided they are too "busy" to have the little graduation that they have every yr. Wth are they busy with? They said themselves they are done with teaching. So now instead of seeing ds graduate kindergarten, we have a bowling trip with the class. Its lame to me. How come every yr except ours has the cute little ceremony?( graduation caps and gowns)


ETA- I know its not a big deal but here in PR it is. Obviously Ill deal lol.

Im not taking him out of school bc I'm mad. I am bc technically hes done. 

The bowling trip was an end of the yr thing so either way he would have done it. 

When I say graduation...its not a long ass ceremony like high school gets. Its like a party for the kids with caps and gowns for pictures.

I know I shouldn't be. But its ds's first yr in school and from what Ive heard its a really cute ceremony. They dont do it any other yr until senior yr. So I was excited for the pics of him in his little cap and gown. Obviously it's not a huge deal. I was just thinking a bowling trip over graduation is stupid. Im not the only one. People are actually writing the school board. Im not going that far...
