Connect with other families...

A visitor suggested that I start a post where families can connect with other families attending their children's schools. This particular parent is sending her son to Marshall next year and she'd love to start networking with other Marshall families.

34 comments:

  1. Hi Marshall Family
    We're headed there to. Twin girls going into K. Please write us directly and maybe we can start building a K parents group.

  2. Jefferson anyone?

  3. That is fantastic idea, but, sadly, I'm kind of afraid of getting negative comments about my school choice so I'm afraid to post.

  4. Thanks Kate.

    I'm the Marshall parent, please email me and we can get a group going: mmcmahoncost@yahoo.com.

  5. I'm a Paul Revere parent, and I don't care what anyone thinks about that!

    I'm glad you started this post; I was thinking we needed one like this, too.

    You can reach me at joy.dipaola@earthlink.net

  6. We will be at Sunnyside next year, and we'd love to organize playdates with kids who will be entering kindergarten.

  7. OK, feeling bold... perhaps it was the beer I had with dinner.

    Maybe the Paul Revere School parents will feel better posting there. I figured it might be a little easier. And, of course, feel free to email me (joy.dipaola@earthlink.net).

  8. JBBP/Rosa Parks...
    My son is going into 1st Grade at JBBP/Rosa Parks. We are having monthly get togethers at Rossi Park this summer (for the "Kindergrads). I am happy to add anyone who is interested to the list. These large 'playdates' would be a nice way to meet returning families so you can get some of your questions answered.
    There will be a welcome bbq late in the summer before school starts. Look for information on that event from the school.

  9. Thank you Kate for all the work you've done on this blog! Thank you Joy for starting the blog for Paul REvere!

    Ciao!

  10. Why would you be afraid to post your school choice? You chose it, right? The reaction to our choice varies depending on the audience. I consider guessing and then waiting to see the reaction the parlor game du jour.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Because some people on this blog are openly hostile to towards anyone who does not choose a public school.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sure, and there are plenty of others here who are openly scornful of those who choose public over private (remember the one who called Kate "nuts?" Doesn't feel good either way, does it?) But most here, it seems to me, are pretty tolerant, and there are also folks who will leap to the defense of any one from either side who gets dissed on that basis. I say, own your choice! Surely you had good reasons for applying to that school and accepting their offer.

    Anyway, the point of this thread is that if you want to connect with others here whose incoming K-ers are going to the same school, try putting it out there and see if you get any takers--you can figure out a way to connect from there. (Though as I write this, it occurs to me: don't most private schools organize the "mixers" and picnics for you?--this would be one of the advantages of private school really, whereas with public, in my experience, the parents usually have to take the initiative on these sorts of things, especially before school starts.)

  13. Flynn General Ed anyone? Maybe there should be a poll, tick your school off, we could get an idea of the spread. (take the list from schools mentioned in comments perhaps?)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Why don't people make yahoo groups for each school, (public and private) and post (anonymously) the links to ask to join those lists?
    That way, no one has to post their e-mail addresses on this very public forum.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Also, check with your school. There may already be a listserv that you can join, and then connect with other kindergarten families. I know a lot of our incoming families have joined ours already.

  16. Anyone going to Grattan interested in a summer picnic/playdate?

    ReplyDelete
  17. we're going to flynn too. they let me join their yahoo group. it's at:

  18. Grattan folks:

    There is a k listserv you can join, link is on the front page of the web site (www.grattanschool.org) . Once you join you'll be able to send out emails to get to know each other.

    The K welcoming committee is planning summer playdates and will be sending info via the listserv and (I think) direct mail.

    As always, keep your eyes on the web site for up to date event information.

  19. Any Sherman parents please check the Sherman website for the welcome letter and contact the PTA to be added to the email list for the planned playdate this summer. Go Sharks! www.shermanschool.org

  20. Any West Portal K parents here?

  21. Not quite K, but anyone heading to James Lick Middle School for 6th grade next year? I'd love to meet some families, especially if you have girls!

  22. Hi -

    My son will be starting Argonne in a few weeks and he is in the first session of kindergarten "camp." Is there anyone in the same session who would be up for a playdate? If so, email me at superkat.sf@gmail.com.

    Thanks!

  23. After the war, finding the silver trade difficult in the ensuing depression, Revere opened a hardware and home goods store and later became interested in metal work beyond gold and silver.

    By 1788 he had opened an iron and brass foundry in Boston's North End. As a foundryman, he recognized a burgeoning market for church bells in the religious revival (Second Great Awakening) that followed the war and became one of the best-known metal casters of that instrument, working with sons Paul Jr. and Joseph Warren in the firm Paul Revere & Sons.

  24. okay, not sure what that last post is meant to convey in the context of this blog, but whatever....

    anyway, did you all see the article on starr king mandarin in the paper this morning? nice article. as i recall that program only filled up after the 1st round this year--though i'm thinking it will be oversubbed next year.
