middle school orientation

Samantha had middle school orientation this morning. We just did the first year of middle school last year with Aidan, so orientation was more for her than her parents. What blew me away this morning was the student panel of speakers who were there to answer questions that parents had. Their answers to tough questions were amazing.

The obvious question – what do you like most about middle school? I would have answered…NOTHING! Their answers included respect and freedom from teachers, small classes where even shy kids are celebrated, and the best response of all…. an environment where you can figure out who you want to be and no one will judge you for it. Wow, just wow.

I cannot wait to look through the elective choices with both kiddos later in the week. So many choices that will help them learn and grow. Can I go back to middle school at Carolina Friends School?
