1) DD1 (my 1st grader) will be in the same school. It's a K-8. 2) She feels safe and secure, has friends and is receiving a top-notch education.
1) DS will start K so is leaving his preschool. 2) The schedule, he's been able to go 5 mornings a week and that's helping prepare him for the longer days of K next year. From his point of view this allows him lots of playtime with his buddies!
1. Ella will be in the same school, same room, same teacher :) They do combined grades, so it's a 1st/2nd grade class. Lucky we love her teacher!
Owen will finish preschool in May and then start kindergarten in the fall. We go to visit the class on Friday. I hope I can keep from getting teary like I did with Ella (sniff, sniff).
2. The school we have chosen for our kids is a k-12 charter school. It's very close to our house. I am pretty sure I'm going to love having all 4 of my kids in the same school together. So far, we are totally impressed with curriculum, teachers, etc.
That sounds wonderful. My son started school in a K-2 class but the teacher was a football coach's wife and didn't quite understand my small, non-athletic, non-"boy"-ish boy. It really needs to be a great teacher and Ella sounds like she has one.
