Alternative Classrooms for the Academically Talented

Eila will be attending a new school next year. On the recommendation of her teacher, we nominated her for a gifted magnet program. (Strangely, it is a parent-nominated system and we, like all parents, think our daughter is smart.) She took a large number of tests this spring and scored pretty well. (It turns out she is really smart!) She is in the top 2% of children her age (nationally) and was invited to join the elite group of kids on the other end of town. She is pretty excited about going to school with her best friend, Genevieve, next year, but she will miss her close school friends, especially Dasha. She is unaware at this point, and it will be a big shock to our sleepy girl when she has to leave for school a full hour and 20 minutes before she leaves now!

Recess

On most days recess is Eila's favorite part of the school day and it seems that she especially enjoys it when she is the one who makes up the game that everyone plays. Today she played "How to be cute!" We couldn't really figure out how she played this game, but she did need some of her lip gloss and lots of hair ties and barrettes at school.
