Meet my friend, Chase- She is a Cheverly resident and one of my work out partners! She also has 3 boys of her own and is the new PTA President at Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary, our local public school. Not only does this school have a new principal, it has a new PTA President who is active and involved in making a positive difference in our local school. Today they had an open house and Chase took me and many others on tours of the school. I’m overwhelmed. I have that not so fun mother angst where I want to keep my little boy at my home forever. It’s so hard to let go and it seems like my son was just born. Now he is 5 and I’m shopping around for schools. Currently there is a lot going on in my head that I need to process before typing any of it on here, but I do have to say that I’m impressed with the positive steps at the school being made by Chase and so many other moms and dads from our neighborhood. We CAN make a difference by being involved in making our community schools great. Three cheers for some awesome moms at the open house who are active in the PTA. School options are always a hot and controversial topic. I’d love feedback from those of you who have kids in our local schools. Feel free to comment below.
