Well here we are one week til school starts.
Six weeks passed by quickly but the girls are ready. Thaniqua & Jennifer both miss there friends. This year should be another fun one. Thaniqua is a fifth grader. She was chosen to be on the leadership team also. We are really excited for that. Thaniqua has been reading & very active at church also.
Jennifer is a third grader & starting the GATE program for advanced learners. I'm so very proud of her. Jennifer over the summer done a lot of reading. She recently finished the Hunger Games & Catching Fire. Those were two Huge books for her but she did fine. She is getting ready to start reading Mocking Jay next.
This school year has some changes the biggest one the kids have to wear uniforms. I'm not sold on it but I do see the good in it as far as bullying & pressure on what some students choose to wear. The uniform is a plain red , navy blue or white polo shirt. Uniform style pants , tan , black or navy blue. They can wear jeans fitted at the waste , no holes or rips. Shorts & skirts tan , black or blue & not short. I went to the meetings on this & I asked for jeans just because Jennifer still isn't a fan of snapping her pants yet & boys are hard on dress type pants at recess. So they can wear the pull up jeans as long as not tight or leggings. Even though Ridge is in middle school now I know how boys wear things out.
Also another big item is & it is sad , this could be the last year of year round school for us. The district does not want to do it after this school year. I'm hoping that we can change there minds on this. I went to two meeting & gave my opinion. I know when we moved here I didn't think I would like it year round but I feel all the children do so much better this way. I'm taking notes & doing a poll watching growth in some certain areas just hoping we can help them see the reason to not change. My kids all love it.
Well as for Ridge he is has to also wear uniforms but he does not start school until Aug 27th. He is nervous but ready for a Huge step Middle school.
Then there is Carly who tells us all the time I'm going to Kindergarten , not quite two more years. She probably could she knows so much from the others.
One week for my girls & we are excited.......... July 30th.
