  1. Elementary Common gripe I know, but why, oh why can't people RSVP to a damn birthday party evite. I'll concede that I emailed invitations early (4wks) since its the summer but haven't hard...(more) 7-13-2016 8:49pm (30 replies)
    from most people. I hate when DD (turning 6) asks and that I haven't heard back from good school friends. I wish I had a sense, if no one was coming I'd cancel or reschedule. FWIW, the party is in mid-August but our school starts two days after the event.

    I made a pledge to donate to my daughter's school. Subsequently, the school said it would accept ds for pre-k but not for k, which is totally unacceptable to us given his age (he is a May birthday and he is ready for K). So we are sending both children to a different school next year. Do we still have to make the pledged donation?
