It’s Parent Campout Time – a.k.a. Kinder Registration


Baywood Elementary in San Mateo, CA: API scores in the 900’s, a fantastic staff, highly involved parents, and too many students for the overcrowded neighborhood school.

Parents here line up outside the school office TWO DAYS before Kindergarden registration begins! But this is no ordinary campout. Besides sleeping bags and beach chairs, the super organized Baywood parents bring pitchers of martinis to share and a large screen to watch movies.

Once upon a time, I taught second grade at Baywood. I’m still friends with some of the staff there, but this year, my cousin’s son is now one of the newly admitted students.

I can’t wait to hear about the annual Baywood Campout from a parent’s point of view!

Anyone work at a school similar to this?
