This morning was the May Day Celebration at my son's school. It was just one of the best shows ever. We have a very small school. I think about 300 students, maybe more. I understand when moving one of the most important things is making sure there is a good school system, but you can't always judge a book by the first couple pages. Sometimes you have to delve into it some before it starts to get good ... like Stephen King ... always a great story but very difficult for me to get into for the first few chapters. Before I moved to Hawaii I heard HORROR stories about our schools. NONE true. I do not care that the "test scores" are below average ... I DO NOT CARE. With the no child left behind act they are pooling all the kids and all the test scores together ... it's just not fair to the schools or the teachers. We have children here from all over the world, we have an extemely diverse group of people who all make this their home. I believe it's my job to make sure my son is getting the education he deserves and I require. I am right on top of that and participate as a parent to help ensure he grows and learns as he should. My son is top in his class and has had a wonderful year in first grade. He is getting a top notch education provided by some of the most loving and caring people I have ever met. And, his education includes something he cannot get anywhere else ... Aloha.
I did get some video of the show and plan on posting soon.
