Only one more week till school starts for my girls! I have one daughter going into 8th grade and the other going into 4th grade at a new school. So, as we prepare for school, my 8th graders’ main concerns are if she got into advanced language arts, if her friends are in her “pod”, she needs a new backpack that’s stylish and big enough for all her books and a pair of rainbow flip flops. I was quite shocked to see how much backpacks cost! I ended up buying one on eBay for half the price so one thing checked off my list.
Does anyone else have any tips for buying back packs?
I am also in shock about how much these “special” flip flops cost…can’t commit to those.
For my daughter who is starting a new school, her main concern was making new friends. I found this helpful article with great tips for how a parent can help their child make new friends.
Does anyone else have good tips for helping new students fit into a new school?
