After 3 long years on the waiting list DD2, aka Fiona, was accepted TODAY<br>
at the Montessori school near our house that goes through the 8th grade!!I was so happy when DH called me with the news that I laughed AND cried. Her 6 year old reaction to the news, "Well, will I still have Missy for my teacher?" (her preprimary directress for the past 4 years)

Oh, that's great! We had an assessment meeting with the director of the new school that Gretchen will be attending next year. Gretchen really like the director, who will be her directress next year, but the first thing she asked was whether her friends from her old school would be coming to her new school.<br><br>
We were so excited to get our school plans locked down for a few more years. There is such a feeling of relief in that.

Hey, Congrats!<br>
Knowing how committed you are to Montessori education, I'm sure this is a load off your mind. Btw, is this the "snooty school"? lol

Great!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I bet that is such a relief!<br><br>
We have a great charter school here that does their new enrollment based on a random lottery, so I just hope that my DD gets her application picked when she starts K. The school goes through 8th, which makes me really excited.<br><br>
I also have 2 younger children that will automatically be enrolled since they have sibling preference.

Hah! It is the snooty school!! But even though it is not economically diverse, it will work for the next few years (plus she gets the way cool AMI classroom with NO spelling workbooks, etc)<br><br>
Plus you just know I'll make it my mission to lobby for an afterschool program for working mamas(they lack one currently so Fi will catch a short bus back to westshore next year)......look for B and Fi at camp, they'll both be there as usual.
