This is a really hard situation. Have you talked with the school about their decision to not give out a directory? A directory is really needed for parents to connect so the children can connect. I’m sure you’re already doing some of these things, but here are some ideas off the top of my head…
Driving on fieldtrips, going to PTSA meetings and helping with class parties are ways to meet the parents. Your child’s classroom teacher might be able to help brainstorm some ways you can help your daughter connect with her classmates outside of the classroom. Have you invited any children from class over just to play after school? How about organizing the girls in your daughters class to all be on the same West Seattle Soccer Spring team together. Perhaps the teacher would send the forms home with the girls. There is also West Seattle Girls Softball League. Both of the organizations are terrific and will allow kids from the same school to request to play together. I hope this is helpful! Good luck!
My neighbor sent me this link to a Canadian news magazine giving a fascinating account of one Iowa caucus.
Yesterday my teenager and I spent two hours on this link: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21116732/
listening to each of the viable candidates positions on major issues. Great learning experience for both of us. We’re still undecided between Sen.’s Clinton, Obama & Edwards. We feel that all three of them would be excellent change for the better. Listening to Romney, Guiliani & Huckabee was quite a learning experience too. There is no question in my mind that I will support whoever is on the Democrat ticket.
