Overall, it's been a succesful first week at the South. Our kindergarten students started today and things seem to be running smoothly. Normal jitters and a few tears, but those didn't seem to last long. I'm guessing many of our students have been pretty tired when they go home after school. I know that it always takes me a few weeks to settle back into the school routine. Just a reminder to take this into consideration when your kids seem to be reverting to old behaviors. I know my boys have been showing the signs of the new changes with extra whininess and less patience. That's when I remind myself to use my 2nd step skills of belly breathing and counting ( I may also be a little less patient and cranky!)
On another note, we are welcoming 13 new students to the South this year and I am looking forward to getting to know them during lunch on Monday.
