We like our speed dating, I’m mean speed meeting the teachers so much a couple of months ago so we played again tonight. Our last Middle School Parents-Student-Teachers.

Back with her friends at her former school.
It was also nice for me to be back on familiar ground and see the teachers and administrators.
Second kid has been “oriented” today.
They should be able to take away the world… Or at least have a smooth transition to their new school on Monday on their first day back to school.
The day known as Mommy freedom day in the mother world 😉
First and last day of school at Western Academy of Beijing. August 2013-June 2016
It’s been a wonderful ride.
Thank you for the education.
Thank you for the amazing community.
You will be greatly missed.
Ps: This is not only their last day of school but their last day at THIS school. Life of the expat kids. Every summer the goodbyes are hard because you are either leaving your friends behind for new adventures or your friends leave for their new chapter.
The party season has officially started.
May and June are a succession of award ceremonies, graduations, going away parties, etc.
Tonight we are celebrating the Athletics and Arts program from our school. 450 people honoring our students.
The parent association at our school organizes every year in March a Small Change Appeal.
Bring your small change (but we also accept big change 😉 ) and we will count it. For the last 3 years, all the money raised go towards EGRC (Educating Girls in Rural China). 5000RMB ($500) sponsors 1 student for 1 year of education. The school committed to 12 girls, but the second year we raised enough for 15 girls so we are aiming for 16 girls in 2016.
Counting the small change is a labor of love: the 1 Mao coin & bill you see in the picture is 0.10RMB or 0.01 US cents ;-).
It was back to school today for my little sick man.
Mommy also needed the “me” time after being “trapped” 3 days at home.
School work and homework can be done online so he doesn’t miss too much, well except recess and his friends but he got a lot of cuddles from me instead!!
Parent-Student-Teacher conference for The Middle school tonight and tomorrow!!!
A very connected school.
Two nights in a row of school open house. 8 subjects ie 8 teachers to meet in a two-hour frame x 2 nights.
I feel like I’ve been on speed dating with the teachers. Every 10 minutes the bell will ring and we will go to the next subject/teacher.
