During the last week of August Kaleya was on television! Her school was featured in the local news for the changes that the new principal, Jahi Rohrer, is trying to make to help bring the school up.
Kaleya can be seen at 0:58, at the end of the row of students doing their morning cheer.
Though we withdrew Kaleya from the school just two days after this aired, it was still cool to see. Kalonji is President of the Parent-Teacher organization and he will still be involved with the group. However, we felt for Kaleya’s best interest that we needed to transfer her to a different school.
I am so tickled! Today, I taught Kaleya how to do latch hook. Latch hooking was the origin of my craftiness – I learned how to do it when I was about her age and would do it for about 10 years. My sister gave Kaleya an old rug that she’d made, so when I saw it, I realized Kaleya was about the right age.
She got a little bored with it, but hopefully, as we make it an activity we do together, she will become more interested.
Kaleya’s school hosts a “museum night” four times a year and they are cool events. Last week, they held their third one of the year. The themes vary by grades and on Kaleya’s floor the theme was “Rainforests.” Here are some pictures of the evening.
