School is Cool! Well, Now It Is
When I saw it, my stomach dropped. She was in a class without a single best friend. I emailed her teacher and expressed my concern. Macey gets anxious about things: rain storms, Monopoly games, episodes of Sophia the First. I knew that this was not going to go well.
But we talked about it. About making friends in a new class and maybe even better friends! Off to school she went. I prayed and prayed that she would have a good first day of Second Grade. But then I got the phone call.
Macey had thrown up. She needed to come home.
I met with the Assistant Principal as well as the Principal and explained my anger that she was transferred into a class without a single good friend. They consulted the school counselor, and she agreed with me, and we were able to transfer Macey into a class with her friends.
The second day of school was so much better! School was cool!
