It’s been a week since this 6th Grader of ours started school for 2017-2018 school year. What’s the most exciting part about it is that we are going public school this year!

It was a tedious registration process. It took us half of the day from the first step to the last step until we got the congratulations part and until she got to buy her Keene Chargers t-shirt. Nonetheless, it was worth it because I can already feel that she will love it here with all the programs she is interested to take advantage of especially the Gifted and Talented Program as well as the Robotics Club.

So, we will see what the school year brings. I am sure this learner of ours will do great like she always does!
