    1. Will your child be in the same school next year?

    2. What is the best thing about the school your child is in this year?

    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!
    Louise_WebMD_Staff replied to KC_94920's response:
    Those both sound like great schools. I like the K-8 as well. I think the 6-8 schools are doing kids a bit of a disservice.

    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.
