Today is the first day of school. It’s darling K’s first day of First Grade.
Oh my! It is back to school again. K is now officially a First Grader. Today, we received the postcard from her new teacher. And we met her this evening at the new school. All the school supplies needed for the whole year were submitted this evening.
As you know, our school district did some rezoning because K’s previous school is over populated. The students who are affected with the rezoning will attend the newer elementary school, which is 5 miles distance from our house. Hopefully, K will be joined by a few of her classmates in Kindergarten from her previous school. She will be delighted about that seeing a familiar face.
Being a transferee makes you feel uneasy. It is always takes time to adjust to the new school. I was a transferee, too, when I was in school. In fact, I was transferred to three schools because my family moved three times-twice during my grade school days and once when I was in middle school. It was tough because I didn’t remember my parents encouraged me or comforted me during the adjustment period. This is a new challenge for me to surpass. I will do my best to be able to give my child the encouragement she needs in this transition.
K is somewhat excited, though. This is because she will not be able to see her cousin in the new school. My cousin and I talked to our girls and assured them that everything will be fine. They will be seeing each other again in Middle School, and they will always have play dates.
Though I am not quite excited for the back to school coming Monday, but I am happy that we all had a wonderful summer. I am hoping for a great school year, too.
How about you?
Elementary Field Day Filled With Physical Activities and Water Fun ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2017 )
K’s school had it’s yearly Field Day this morning. All elementary students were geared up and excited for this amazing day to show their physical capabilities on fun games and to enhance their social development and sportsmanship.
The event was held at the high school athletic facility. Students, together with their respective teachers, facilitating staff, and attending parents gathered at the athletic field for a great day of fun.
The activities/sports were facilitated according to stations. Each station had at least three assigned coordinator so the children were well-guided at these games: Bouncy Ball Race, Sponge Water Splash, Relay Race, Soccer game, and the classic game of Tug-O-War.
K enjoyed the bouncy ball race and the sponge water splash most. She didn’t get the chance to guard the goal and got to kick the ball only once at the soccer game. But she had fun playing. That’s the most important part of the Field Day. Having fun. Then we had a picnic lunch under the bleachers because it’s shady and the wind was very refreshing. Then we had Kona Ice after lunch. Yay!
The school was prompt sending announcements about this special event. We were well-prepared for the Field Day. It’s a hot cloudy day and the wind was blowing pretty hard. We brought:
- Extra clothes
Another memorable and fantastic day today. 🙂
What a week. Since I started going back to work, as a substitute teacher at my daughter’s school, my house has become unorganized. I had two pending Balikbayan boxes which I just shipped out this Saturday. Then I have more stuff left for another box to be shipped out to my family in the Philippines before my nieces and nephews go back to school in June. School is out end of this month so they will be in summer vacation starting April 1st.
I started as a substitute teacher at K’s school February this year. I subbed in a few classes in Kindergarten, in First Grade, and in Fourth Grade. The recent sub position I took was for the Librarian Aide. So I worked at the library for three days. It was fun and a little busy because it was testing week at the school. The testing was conducted in the computer laboratory so the computer classes were joined other classes at library times.
Next week is Spring Break and I can’t wait for our trip to Beaver’s Bend State Park in Oklahoma. My darling daughter is excited as well. We’re going to explore the park again. Right now, I am finishing a few house chores and will go to the playground later.
