So we checked the school calendar and no school feb 14 or 18th so we offered DS that time for his senior trip. (Unsure if he will have the other knee surgery this coming year or summer). He would miss 1/2 day of school. This week his scholastics bowl coach, who bids for his time against show choir, tells him you will miss senior night ( the half day we were leaving ) and our largest tournament SATURDAY and that is the day she got him from the show choir event. Well the scholastic coach is his AP calc teacher and she told the class and me at teacher conference: they signed up for the class they don't want students to miss class; well that's why we picked a break. There are no other 4 day weekends, other than Easter- yikes. Hmm all other Saturday are show choir events or schol bowl; spring break weekend major event and parents are told they will help. Flights in the middle of that mess $1700 - not going to happen. DVC not available either. jimmy cricket this might turn into parent trip only next December. Whine over.
