This Friday will be Step-up Day at Pond Cove School. The kids will get a chance to meet their new teacher and their new classmates. It can be a fun day, but can also produce some anxiety! Mrs. G, our school counselor, came to our classroom yesterday to talk about Step-up Day and next year's placement issues. She wisely asked the kids to bring 2 things back to school in September:
1. Good learning habits they learned in grade 1
2. A positive attitude--it's gonna be an awesome year in grade 2!!!!!!
Mrs. Gallagher also had the children offer advice to her stuffed panda, who is also anxious about next year. Panda wanted to know what to do if:
1. You did not have your best buddies in your class next year...
2. You did not get the teacher you wanted...
So, if your child is worried about next year, ask your child what advice they gave Panda!!!
