    It is a great song...but for middle school choir it was kind of weird dont ya think?
    To top it off there was one part we were NOT allowed to sing.(your guess here) But the naughty kids did any way....surprise! It was a pivotal point in my life...jk

    Middle school choices

    My 5th grader (will be entering middle school next year...) and her friends wanted to sing (in an elementary school "idol" type competition) "My milkshake brings them boys to the yard....." Thank God director said "Ain't gonna happen, girls...!" LOL.

    None of them have any "milk" to "shake", nor would they know what to do in the "yard" once the boys got there!

    An explanation for RB...

    Hey, RB...the reason we say what class we are/were in rather than age is because every school district varies the age you can start school! As a teacher and a parent, this is dumb, I know, but it set up by a bureaucracy, and they are unwilling to listen to reason. Also, there has to be a cutoff somewhere, they assure me!!

    The school district I live in does it by birth year. If you were born in 2000, you start Kindergarten in 2005. Doesn't matter when in 2000, just 2000. A child born December 31, 2005 is in the same class grade as a child born January 1, 2005. Most of the southeast has a cutoff of August or September 1, so you have to be at least 5 when you enter kindergarten.

    My son was born October 27, 1995, so he started Kindergarten here in September, 2000. Our friends in Florida have a daughter born November 13, 1995 (2 weeks later), but because of where she is, she didn't start school until the next year.

    Some schools up here are idiotic...they have completely arbitrary cut-off dates. The district up the block (next town/different school district) uses December 1. Where I grew up, it was December 11.

    As an aside, you also have kids who, for whatever reason, are "held back", so their age doesn't correspond to their school year. I know someone whose child was born November 1997 (same year as my youngest daughter). Started Kindergarten September 2002. (Correct time as per my school district, but remember he was only 4!). Did not do well socially (duhhhh!!) so he was "held back" by his parents. Following September, he was now 5 in Kindergarten again. A few years later, they moved to Florida, and he is now "correct age for grade" in Florida, but he was again having problems, so he was "held back" again, making him 2 years behind in my district, but only 1 year behind in Florida....

    Got all that??? Sorry you asked???? LOL!

    Hey, Mike...I know it stinks, but what is a better solution? Some suggested testing children before entering school (my district does have a kindergarten pre-screening process....however, if the parent disagrees with the school evaluation, they go by what the parent wants, as long as child in "born" in the right year!!).

    Testing kids isn't the answer either, as then you could have 4 year old Kindergartners (like my son was) in school with almost 7 year olds, if the 7 year olds are that "not-ready for prime time!"

    I know someone whose daughter was born December 31, 1996, making her eligible for Kindergarten (here, at least...) in September 2001. She "held back", so she would be one of the oldest in her grade, instead of the youngest. She could have gone either way, because the child was ready in 2001. Instead, she did an extra year of private nursery school, and started in 2002.

    Like I said, even though the cut-offs sometimes seem arbitrary, what is a better solution?

    don't think there is a good solution.

    I missed the cut-off, daughter will also. thats fine, she is small for her age. No problems fitting in, she has the boys lined up to hold her hand.

    My daughter made the cut-off. She STILL has boys fighting for her hand. (This is my youngest....)Hence, the "milkshake" song! LOL

    If Rachel was my first, I think she may have been my last! She's boy crazy at 10! Lord help me!
