— 12 April 2004 —
Sagan started her new school today. She gets her own locker (the building used to be Bloomington Junior High), and is in the room with the “castle.” They have a ‘second story’ of sorts built in the room with stairs up and plexiglass walls so the kids can see and be seen.
Her teacher seems nice, I think her name is
Tracey (it’s Tammy), but I am bad at names.
Sagan was very excited to be there, but ran up against room tradition of waiting on the play-area carpet until all the kids arrive for the morning. She wanted to explore the room, which I understand. Tracey did a good job of corralling Sagan without telling her “no.”
I hope she likes it there. Claire will pay the tuition for this month at the end of the month. They didn’t seem to have too much of a problem with that. Especially since we filled up the class for them.
If you would like to help sponsor Sagan’s school, we can make sure you get a picture of Sagan holding your product or service. Maybe we could put stickers all over her backpack, just like the race cars, cyclists, and horses.
