West Boulevard Elementary School.

Columbia, May 12.

I am now part of the PTA at my kids' school and it makes me feel so strange, as if I were suddenly an American, after all these years lived here but not quite here maybe. The PTA! I volunteered to be chair of the outdoor classroom (I've been busy in the garden, some twenty years of repressed gardening unleashed) and added a student activities co-chairmanship when it turned out the outdoor classroom only gets to meet twice a year. I can't wait for next year.
West Elementary School has done such a top job with my kids it will be difficult to repay the debt we owe its staff and teachers. I am grateful and in many ways humbled to be a part of truly one of the best schools in the nation.
