Life In Middle School

Last night was the parent's night for the rising 6th graders at Osborne Middle School. It doesn't seem possible that as of next year we'll be parents of a middle schooler. We went to the advanced gifted math program informational meeting that will in essence have Kayla learning three years of algebra in a two year span (6th and 7th grade) and make it possible for her to take Calculus her Junior year and Statistics her Senior year of high school. This is edition to the Probe (gifted) program that has her learning at a faster pace in all her core subjects and allowing her to participate in more enrichment activities that apply what they've learned.

Then it was off to the learning about middle school in general and the school policies. I didn't go to Phil's team's room to embarrass - although the thought did cross my mind. We learned about their typical day and that Kayla will need to think about whether or not she wants to take some type of musical class (chorus, band or orchestra). However we do have some time to make that decision but the Fall will be here before we know it.
