I hope this is in the right place. If not, Mods, please feel free to move it.
B/G Just this year we've moved and my oldest has started attending a small private religious school. So far he loves it, and so do we. Great teachers, great kids, great environment. We are very pleased. Except I have issues with the school principal. He's young. He's newish to the job. And to me it really shows. We're in a small town now, and I admit, I'm a city girl. So maybe I'm being a little too critical.
In the last several weeks I have witnessed the following:
1. Principal shows up to lead a parents meeting in dirty shorts and a sweatshirt.
2. Principal shows up for chapel service, to which the parents are invited, and stands in the front, dressed in a shirt and tie, and slurping on a big gulp. In the sanctuary.
3. I change my schedule around to volunteer for something he is in charge of. I know he as my contact info, as he emailed me the schedule two days before. When I show up they can't use my help, because of a transportation issue on their part. His response to "I'm here as your volunteer for the day" was "Um, how are you planning to get back?" Not, "I'm sorry no one contacted you about our issues, we can't use your help today."
Maybe I'm being grouchy, but we pay for our child to go to that school. It's not cheep. Is there a way to adress the utter lack of professionalism? #3 is really the one that bugs me the most. I realize the rest are probably a little petty. But he wasted my time, which leaves me not wanting to volunteer again. And we're less than a month into the school year.
