First week of second grade could have been awful, but...

I just have to brag on DSD's school. They wound up with too high a teacher/student ratio, and despite the fact DSD loved her new teacher, they moved her into a new section after the first two days.

At first I was frustrated, but since I knew she was moving today, I volunteered out at the school. Winds up it couldn't have been better. She had a long term sub last year that she LOVED when her first grade teacher was out on maternity leave-- and she's her new teacher! And better yet, the principal came, sat on the floor with the kids, and told them exactly what happened. He was so sweet. The first thing he asked was if anyone was nervous (everyone but DSD raised their hands-- I think she wanted to prove to me she was brave, haha). By the end of their talk, he asked again, and no one raised their hands. What a great principal.

I love DSD's school!!

DD went through that her first year of school in kindergarten.  Poor girl was so confused for awhile about who her teacher was and would ask if she was going back to other teachers class.   We have a good principal as well who knows pretty much every parent and student almost by face.

That is awesome!  I have a feeling we might end up in that boat because our numbers are pretty high to the point all it takes is 2 more students registering for 2nd grade and they have to get a new 2nd grade teacher!
