OUR DAILY PINS

I work in social services and had a 12 yr old who was recommended to attend a Magnetic Program during high school. I provided his mother with the application about a month ago and informed her of the date and time the application must be submitted. I followed up about a week before the application was due and his mother informed me that he has not completed it but she will have him do it over the weekend. I advised her that he will need some assistance.

The day before the application was due I called again to check on the status and she informed me that he did not complete the application nor did he want to. I explained to her that it was not totally up to him and she needed to help him complete the application and that I will contact his counselor to see if we can get the additional paperwork we need from the school before the deadline.

After speaking with the counselor and without hesistation she said she would gather any school info needed and get him to get the recommendation completed. The following day I went to the school and got the application packet and reached out to his mother who was responsible for submitting the application. Low and behold she did not answer the phone :( I took the application and  read the requirements again which stated that the application needed to be submitted to the school or postmarked by Feb 17th!!

 I recieved a call from his mother around 5pm and met her to get his teachers recommendation and got the packet posted marked on Feb 17th. Now this WELL DESERVED AND INTELLIGENT  12 yr old will have unlimited opprotunities becasue his case manager, school counselor and teachers believe in him and have no  DOUBT that he will be successful one day!!!! The children are our FUTURE…..
