The time has approached for summertime to wind down and to try to beat parents for the back to school rush of new school supplies and school clothes. My heart is pounding as I am thinking about my son riding the school bus for the first time, eating in the cafeteria, and walking the hall ways of an Elementary School. My goal for my son is to perform well academically, meet new friends, and learn major social skills that will help him in his life as a grows and develops from kindergarten through sixth grade.
The first glance of the school supply list seems to be overwhelming and what stores may have the best prices for the family? You randomly look through the list of number two pencils, crayola crayons, markers, reams of copy paper, and what kind of back pack will work for the year. However, along with buying school school supplies and anticipating his first morning at a new school. I am very excited about his upcoming growth not only as a student, but as a well rounded citizen in the community.
I am looking forward to joining the PTA, meeting other kindergarten parents, and learning about Elementary the second time around with my young prince. Later on this week we are wrapping up our summer reading program, summer Science, and the labeling of back packs will begin for the family. I am so excited for this new adventure and chance of a lifetime!
