this time since we moved to Schaumburg, our oldest DS is entering junior high school (grades 7 & 8) this academic year! It's a little different as he has already experienced middle school (grades 6, 7 & 8) in Wheaton. He is anixously wanting to move on from elementary school.
This school is organized a little differently as we had done EVERYTHING in one day in Wheaton (photo IDs, touring the classes, practicing the locker combo)...nothing in Schaumburg. Just pickup schedule, purchase school supplies & sportswear and sign up for the PTA...that's it! Tomorrow we have to go back and do the classroom tours, try the locker combo, etc...what's up with that? There was no mention of coming back another day and he's signed up for tennis tomorrow until Thurs - the director of the tennis program let him do this so it's nothing that we can just blow off - UGH! I'm thinking about calling the school to see if we can do this another day...well, it's worth a try! LOL!!
Anyone else changing schools like from elementary to middle/junior school or to high school? How is your student feeling as school is creeping up?
