And over the summer -- she gets a summer reading list this year!
I am immeasurably impressed by what we learned tonight. This is definitely not the Montessori school of my childhood - the expectations are much higher, and for that I think Dora and I are both glad. Arden might disagree ... that remains to be seen. Although she's working on a project with Upper Elementary already and is pretty obsessed with how awesome it is. Geothermal energy for the win!
Just about 4 years ago to the day we toured the school for the first time, contemplating starting her for Kindergarten.
Seriously. Look at her. Oh Gymboree, how I miss being allowed to shop in your store.
We opted to keep her at her daycare for Kindergarten, a decision I think we might regret, but the past is the past. So she started a year later, in Lower Elementary. And the third graders in her class seemed so old. And the 4th graders even older. And now she's a third grader just a blink away from moving on up.
