I'm so excited that our school district decided to move 6th grade from the middle school into the elementary school this year like many other schools in our county. I get to have him with me one more year before he goes to the middle school! Brady on the other hand is not as excited. He said, "in all the history of this school...they wait until my grade to make this big change!" He was ready to move on. I'm hoping that our principal mixes it up a bit and gives the 6th graders some extra responsibility in the building to keep it different for them.
Brady was excited and ready to go back to school. There are two 6th grade teachers and he will go back and forth between the two with science, math, communication arts and social studies. He will also have music, gym, art, library and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
It's crazy to me that I have a 6th grader. It seems it was just last year that we were registering him for kindergarten. He was this little boy in this big scary school. And now, he is this confident and kind young man that continues to make us proud with the way he conducts himself, the choices he makes and the way he treats others. Here's to a great school year!
