Registration Day

We were so busy today, whew! We woke up early because we went to school and register our kindergärtner princess. The tuition fee cost was $2050.00, arrrghhh. We paid it off because we don't want to deal with the monthly payment and besides we set aside the money for that so we don't want to spend it for other things. It's a little expensive but hubby and I think that it's all worth it since the school is a very nice community for our kids where family values are prioritized.
After registration, we went to Rylie's classroom where we met her teacher. Mrs. Runkel showed Rylie around. It is pretty neat how they do it here. The teacher prepared some welcome stuff for the kids with their name tags on it. Since we call our daughter by her middle name, the teacher will have to change the Jillian names to Rylie lol, sorry about that Ma'am Precy. That's what Rylie got which our sweet tooth little boy gladly took lol.
She also gave us some infos about the class and other things that we need to know. After that, we went to Hannover Park because one f the kindergarten parents set up a parents-students meet up which is very nice because we got to familiarize ourselves with each other.
The kids had so much fun with the other kids, will post about it later. Then we will go to the uniform place tomorrow. The parents decided that the kids will wear a uniform on Mondays and Thursday. Kindergarten are not reqired to wear a uniform but some suggested that it would be good if they get accustom to wearing one. So let's see. For now, I gotta hit the bed because I have to wake early again tomorrow wahhhh.

  1. It's great that you were able to enroll Rylie in Kindergarten. But wow, the enrollment fee is very exorbitant, it's almost a hundred thousand pesos, nakakalula, lol. According to my wife, education in elementary and high school is free in the US. Is this good only for public schools? Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  2. This reminds me of my daughter's first day in school, she was 4 years old. From that time on, we had to wake up early, too. Good thing she's working now. He, he. Thanks for your visit, Rose.

  5. Mel, where I live, in IL, public school education is not free. Since we are homeowners, we have to pay a tax bill every year, and alot of goes for the school system, but it still cost me around $500.00 to register my two in high school, pay for a month of school lunches, and for all of the necessary school supplies (one of the supplies is a special calculator, for Algebra II, that costs $100). Yes, it isn't the $2,000+ that Rylie's fee was, but there is definitely a misconception about public school being "free" here in the US. As we have learned here in the States, nothing is truly free.

  8. $2,050? That's too much! (Well, when converted to PhP).

    That was a nice welcome. Hope there will be such kind of treat here in our country so that the children would really love to be in school.

    God Bless your Rylie :)
