I've been looking ahead at the kids school schedule for the month of October and I was surprised to see that they have three days off. What's up with that? October shouldn't have days off, as it is we are headed into the holiday season and it will be here before we know it. They get a four day weekend and Halloween off. Like that wasn't planned, no costume parade hassles, no candy messes. It's not like I don't love my kids and want to spend time with them, it's just that I think they should go to school more and longer.
Why do they get out early on Friday? I know it's really so the teachers can get out of town and let's face it by Friday they have to be sick of them, I would be. Why can't schools be an all day thing? They could keep them for a couple of hours after school to make sure they do their homework and send them home for dinner, bathes and bedtime. Think of how much calmer our days as parents would be. Let's hear it for all day school!
