First and most importantly, thank you SO much for all of the support and advice on the situation with my DD and her classmate. I have emailed the principal (who, of course, was in the office last week but out this) and am headed over to talk to DD's old first grade teacher, who is also a good friend of the principal, for some advice (and to I hope lay some groundwork).

I cannot fully express how much your input is meaning to me. If you would still like get your 2 cents in, please read the previous post. Thanks again!!

But as a distraction, I'm choosing to be tagged by Zarzuela Knits:

Here are the rules: You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (only the month and day). Then you write down 3
events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends.

June 4

3 Events:

1913 - Emily Davison, a suffragette, runs out in front of the king's horse, Anmer, at the Epsom Derby. She is trampled and dies a few days later, never having regained consciousness.

1917 - The very first Pulitzer Prizes are awarded: Laura E. Richards, Maude H. Elliott, and Florence Hall receive the first Pulitzer for a biography (for Julia Ward Howe). Jean Jules Jusserand receives the first Pulitzer for history for his work With Americans of Past and Present Days. Herbert B. Swope receives the first Pulitzer for journalism for his work for the New York World.

1919 - Women's rights: The U.S. Congress approves the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guaranteed suffrage to women, and sends it to the U.S. states for ratification.

2 Births:

1738 - King George III of Great Britain (d. 1820)

1966 - Cecilia Bartoli, Italian mezzo-soprano

1 Holiday:

Hong Kong - Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989 memorial day

A good day for women, not so good for Chinese dissidents.

Off to school in a bit. Wish me luck! And consider yourself tagged if you like and don't if you don't!
