We applied for Samantha to go to the new Montessori charter school and last night we found out that she got in! To say she was excited would be a gross understatement. I snapped this pic after I told her she was accepted 🙂
The school will have grades 1-3 the first year, and add a grade with each subsequent year. This means that Samantha will be the oldest and can serve as a leader in the school. We feel like she will be great at this, especially with how confident she has become this school year. One of her best friends Zoe will also be going which will help the transition to a new school be more comforting. They have been pals since they were 4 years old. And, BEST of all, Samantha’s new friend Lucia also adopted from Guatemala got in! I see a lifelong friendship forming 🙂
As we celebrated, part of me felt badly for those that did not get in, especially the EC students who are struggling at Perry Harrison. Lotteries are rough, but for once the lottery gods were on our side. For that I will be forever grateful.
