School out here in St. Charles starts REALLY early this year. August 8th! The reason is that the district just cancelled year-round school this summer and they want to “ease” teachers and students into the traditional school year with lots of time off. We get a 2 week fall break in October, 2 weeks at Christmas and 2 weeks in March for Spring break. School is also out in early May. I can’t complain too much with all those fun breaks built into the year!
Anyway, my point is that I’m trying to think of fun things to do with Cooper for his first day of Kindergarten. He has been to school for the past two years, but never all day, every day. Do any of you parents out there have any ideas for some fun things I should do to make his first day and week at school special?
He will be at school full day, all week long once it starts! It’ll be a big adjustment for him after our lazy days of summer. He’s been playing video games, swimming and riding bikes, going to bed late and waking up whenever he feels like it…boy will this be a rude awakening!
So all you seasoned parents, share ideas with this newbie Momma, would ya?
