Friday was the last day of school which included an end of the year party and a night-time show for the parents. At the end of the evening the teachers gave grades to the parents (preschool all the way through high school). Apparently, the teachers and kids make report cards together about how supportive the parents are. You get graded on how you run your home, and environmental conservation like recycling, etc. They mentioned they were here to teach your children the best they could, not to make friends. Taylor and I were not graded since we were so new. I couldn't even imagine how some parents would respond to something like that back home.
Abby's class performed a song and dance about a farm at the show. The teachers dressed them up as animals---Abby was a dog and Parker a goat. Parker was hilarious trying to keep up the older kids during the dance. (He was the only kid in his class, so the school moved him up to Abby's class so he wouldn't get bored.) Here are some photos from their school, including the end of the year party (that I helped throw) and a video of the kids performance.Abby in her uniform
