Below are photos of what I went through last night while camped out and waited to register my son for an extremely popular Dual Immersion program that had only 15 open spots.
I managed to get second in line by showing up at 9pm last night. As I hung out, socialized, and slept, other parents trickled in throughout the night and morning. There were hundreds who wanted a spot and we got one, in fact we were the first to get one. Hooray! It was very refreshing to see so many parents who wanted the very best for their children and were willing to sacrifice dignity, sleep, and a warm bed—all this for their children’s education.
The temperature dropped to freezing, but I hung tight with a handful of dedicated parents. The lines actually ended up wrapping the parking lot. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.
Oh and I made the channel 2 news this evening. 🙂
