Ok, so I see a lot of threads going around with starting school and dealing with the gym. Leah and Lexi are starting the 3rd grade in Sept, Lexi has a really cool and young teacher, she is super nice and great with the kids. She is stern when she has to be, and will get the kids ready for 4th grade. Now, Leah has this cranky, old, mean teacher who gives so much homework, never has a smile on her face, parents had complained to the office but couldn't get their kids switched out. I was talking to a 4th grade parent whos ds had her last year. He hated her, and was not happy. School comes first in our house, so if most of their homework is not done, they will go late to gymnastics. Leah had a breakdown when she saw she had her. I tried switching, but they won't switch her. Leah is afraid she will never be able to finish all the homework in time to go to the gym. Help!!
