Going back to Leap Day 2012. I serve as the parent representative for our school on the Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC). I attended the February 29, 2012 meeting where the theme was Legislation Advocacy. Our Superintendent wants to start a Parent Legislation Advocacy group whereby parents would contact state leaders regarding education in our district. I could not jump up quick enough or raise my hand high enough to volunteer for this committee. If I could yell “pick me pick me pick me,” during this professionally run meeting, I sure would have. Needless to say, after the meeting I told our superintendent to count me in to be a part of this group, I left out the “pick me” portion of my enthusiasm. Who would have thought that 3 hours later I would arrive home to check my email and have received my selection as a Mom Congress Delegate for Parenting Magazine. The Leap Year planets were all in alignment.
United, we are ONE VOICE FOR OUR CHILDREN!
