The first day of school is as exciting as it is nerve-wracking. It’s exciting because everything is new – new supplies, new teachers, new classmates, new stories – for some military kids their ENTIRE SCHOOL IS NEW. It’s nerve-wracking because of the many unanswered questions. Will my teacher like me? Will I understand math? Will my BFF be in my class? These are questions every ordinary student will ask. But with every move and new school, military kids have additional questions that come with starting over…again. Will I fit in? Who will be my friend? Who will I sit with at lunch?
Is your child going to a new school in the fall? Does your school have a way to welcome new students BEFORE school starts?
