I went to Maggie’s senior class parents meeting today. The leader wanted to know if the kids and their families still wanted to go on the senior trip to the Caribbean/Bahamas. No one said yes or no. She said that not enough people were participating in the fund raisers. Only eight of the thirty-three families are participating. It doesn’t look like that kids will be going on this trip, but they haven’t cancelled it either.
Maggie and I went to get her passport done today. The office supply store that we went to to get her picture taken for it didn’t do a good job on the picture. Her face was the wrong color. We didn’t have time to go back and get it taken again so we will try again another day.
I don’t think that Maggie will be upset if her class doesn’t go on the cruse. She will be thrilled if they go somewhere. She would like to go to Cedar Point.
Did your senior class go on a senior trip?
Good news! Today Maggie’s math teacher opened up all of the old math for her to complete. He told her that if there was any that she couldn’t remember how to do to please stop and ask him for help. Woo-hoo!!! She will need to pass all of these tests to pass the class. We are so happy that they are opened.
We got Maggie’s state ID today. She needed one to get her passport. The passport place closes at three so we will go tomorrow. Her senior class is trying to decide if they want to take a cruse for their senior trip. If they do, they may all need passports. We have decided to get the passport while they are deciding if they want to go on the trip. Passports take a while to get and we don’t want Maggie to not be able to go if they decide at the last minute and she can’t get hers in time.
I want to get Beth a State ID. She doesn’t need one but she is 17 and doesn’t have a drivers license. If we ever need an ID for her, she will already haven one. She will be so happy, it will make her feel so grown up.
How old were you when you got your drivers license?
Maggie tried to apply at the college for her major but the computer wouldn’t let her. I called admissions, they said that because she has applied to the University as undecided she can’t add her major online. They added her major over the phone, and they said to go in in a few days and sign up for orientation.
William called the employment agency today to check on the application that he sent in on Friday. They didn’t have it. They said that he had to use outlook instead of chrome so there computer can’t see it. He tried to re-enter his resume using chrome but the computer wouldn’t take it. William called the agency again and they took his information over the phone. They will e-mail him a questionnaire to fill out and send back. After that William can talk to them about jobs.
Maggie’s teachers from her two classes that she had added have not opened up the work on the computer that was given before Maggie was officially in their classes. Yesterday Maggie was to talk to the math teacher but she didn’t feel well so she didn’t ask him if he could open up the old tests. She had a meeting at 3:30 today with the entrepreneurship teacher to take the first test. The professor didn’t show up so Maggie left. If Maggie can’t take all of these old tests she won’t pass these classes and she will not graduate from high school. When I got there I sent her back in so that she could make a new appointment. The professor was now in his office.
When Maggie got her class schedule fixed, we had all hoped that everything was fixed. We are still hyperventilating.
