Aye! It’s back to school again. We finished our back-to-school- shopping this week and my darling daughter had a lot of fun picking and buying her clothes and school supplies. Not much supplies needed for 4th Grade which is nice. Haha. We also had to buy a new pair of headphones because her old ones got worn out.
I know many of you are hesitant to send your students to the classroom this school year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whatever decision you make, I hope you kids are gonna be happy. Safety is very important so is happiness. We are in a difficult situation where we have to weigh in the most significant reasons. Our kids needs the utmost patience, understanding, guidance, and support from us parents in these uncertain times. Whatever learning methods you choose for your kids (virtual or face-to-face/in-person/classroom), I wish everyone the best of luck. I hope our kids will have a great school year.
My darling daughter is doing classroom schooling. We will be fine. 🙂
We went book shopping yesterday at Barnes & Noble. Darling daughter is almost finished reading the Wings of Fire series Book #11 so we went to look for Book #12. Gladly she found it in this aisle. The bookstore is in the process of rearranging the book shelves in the children’s section. No more tables and chairs at the story time area. I guess it is to avoid group gathering during shopping hours. Also, there’s no story time at the moment due to this pandemic.
We enjoy book shopping and we love the bookstore. Just looking around looking at books is a therapy.
Congratulations to our darling daughter! She received three awards this year:
“A” Honor Roll
The Writer Award
Certificate of Completion (3rd Grade)
We are very proud of our little girl. She worked hard this year. Though school didn’t re-open since after the Spring Break because of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, the learning continued at home. It was an adjustment and was not easy but we did it. We finished the school year strong and healthy. Award assembly was drive-thru. Even so, we were still able to see the teachers and school mates. It was a happy day.
We still don’t know what the arrangements will be for the next school year. I am sure our school district, and all other districts, are very busy working on the best decisions right now.
Anyhow, congratulations again to my DD. She is 4th Grade-ready.
Congratulations also to the graduates of 2020. We will all get through these trying times. Be strong and persevere.
