Today my colleague and I went to one of our feeder schools and talked to the 5th graders about enrollment for 6th grade and what to expect from middle school.
We had an attentive (while squirrelly) audience, filled with questions from, "How do I know what class to go to next?" to "What happens when you are late to a class?"
The kids are so full of excitement and it is so fun to meet them ahead of time and hear all their questions and concerns.
As they ask us questions, we like to subtly push a few things, like good behavior and attending summer school.
Students may not remember everything we present while visiting their school, but it sure is a great chance to introduce ourselves and hear their concern and fears. I can't wait to work with these kiddos next school year! :)
