Kindergarten Readiness

by minivan mom on Mon, 09/05/2011 - 7:35am

The forms came home in the backpack.  It was inevitable, kindergarten registration time is here.  In the packet is a list to help determine if my guy is “ready” for kindergarten. 

My friends all say,

 “He’ll do great!”

                “It’s going to be wonderful!”

 “He’ll love it!”

The first day back to school experience

by Traci Schumacher on Mon, 08/22/2011 - 1:37pm

Ah, the first day of school! Freshly sharpened pencils, shiny new folders, and book bags stuffed with all the supplies. New teachers, new friends, new opportunities.

And the world – our homes and even our stores – is much quieter. I have only one little 2-year-old to drag around with me on errands now that my 2nd grader and kindergartener are in school. It is bittersweet.

Open house: off to a good start!

Today was open house at our school. My daughter will be in 2nd grade, and my son will start kindergarten on Monday.

I was a little apprehensive about whose classes they would be in. Especially for my son... I just really want his first experience with “real school” to be a positive one.

First Day of School

As I see my son out the door this morning for his first day of school, I wonder, does this first day of school get any easier?  My eldest son is now a first grader, wow!  It's first days like this that make me think back to when he was a baby and how quickly time has pasted.

Q. "Last year my son had numerous problems at school with misbehaving. He was put in detention several times for not listening to his teacher. I am worried that this behavior will begin again this year. What can I do?

A. Some students have gone back to school and others will do so within a couple of weeks.

In school, it is inevitable that some children will exhibit behavior problems. These problems might include disruptive talking in the classroom, name-calling or fighting.

DOLLARS & SENSE: School shopping — tax free or not

by Coastal Mommies... on Wed, 07/28/2010 - 8:16am

By Arlinda Smith Broady, Savannah Morning News

Celebrating a holiday that no longer exists could feel a little like the Mad Hatter’s Unbirthday Party. But Georgia retailers, who lamented the General Assembly’s decision not to enact a Tax Free Weekend this back-to-school season, are behaving as if the legislation passed anyway.

JCPenney at Oglethorpe Mall has a slew of specials and will open at
7 a.m. Saturday.

“We’ve developed a good customer base over the years,” said store manager Tom Duff. “That’s helped our bottom line a lot.”

Walking to School

by Traci Schumacher on Fri, 06/04/2010 - 6:24pm

So, with one week left of school, I decided today to walk my daughter to school – along with my 4-year-old and the baby in the stroller. It seemed like a nice idea... get a little exercise and fresh air, give the minivan a rest, feel more connected to our neighborhood. Of course, we did not manage to leave the house early like I had planned. In fact, we left at our usual time, so let's just say our walk was not as leisurely as I had envisioned. No time to stop and look at things – we were on a mission!
