The Education of Me

I attended the PTA meeting for our community elementary school last night. I joined the PTA last month even though we won't be ready for kindergarten until next year. I really wanted to find out more about the school and it's staff and families and thought this would be a great way to do so. It would. If anyone ever showed up for the meetings! I can't help but be disappointed that I was the only parent in attendance last night. Four of the six on the executive were also there as was the school principal.

But no teachers.

And no other parents. I was told that there was a lot of flu/colds going around and that they expected this was the reason for the low (non-existent!) turn out.

Should this be telling me something?
