What She Wore: Turqoise three-quarter length tee; straight skirt with a flare at the bottom in a black, white, and turquoise houndshooth print; two-tone tuquoise spectators. This outfit was a big hit.
Tonight we had math and literacy night at our school. We told parents all about the upcoming standardized tests and things they could do at home with their children to help prepare them. I’m not wild about standardized tests, but I do think that knowledge is power, and the more kids and parents know about these tests, the better they can prepare for them. With a school of over 500 kids, about 15 showed up–and we considered that a good turnout. Granted, I don’t think the it was well advertised, but it does make me sad. One of the most interested parents was a man originally from Africa. He wanted detailed information about strategies and what kind of score his child needed in order to be "Proficient." Our parents are not usually this interested and it’s kind of a shame. We were happy that some did come, though, especially in rainy weather.
Well, the weather man says we’re due for an ice storm over the weekend, and if that happens we could be out of power for quite a while. I guess I better make sure I have enough food and reading material.
Have a good one.
