Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

 

The school bell will ring soon and many parents will send a child to kindergarten. This is always an emotional time for parents. For some, it will be sending your first born and for others it will be sending the youngest of four. Kindergarten is an important milestone in your child’s life. Your child’s maturity will grow tremendously this year and you’ll get to see a small glimpse of how your hard work over the past 5 years has shaped your child. It wasn’t that long ago that you held your precious baby in your arms for the first time. Where did the time go? Now it’s time to send that little baby off to kindergarten. For most this will be the first full school day, the first  year to ride the school bus, the first year to have homework, and the first year when peer influences begin to play a role.

Gwinnett Schools: Still growing, but slowing

Gwinnett Schools: Still growing, but slowing

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.-- One girl in Gwinnett County could be overheard whispering the concerns of her fellow students: "Mom, this is sooo embarrassing."

Just like those new backpacks and shiny shoes; back-to-school kisses, hugs, and waves were seen all over Metro Atlanta Monday.

"Be yourself!" Bobbie Spellman called after her children as they boarded a school bus. Her family has been in Gwinnett County two years.

"Since we've been here, we've seen a large increase," she said.

Gwinnett is still growing, but not like it was.

"Our growth is slowing significantly," Gwinnett County Schools spokesman Jorge Quintana said. "We used to grow by 7,000 new students a year. This year, we're growing by 1700 new students."

Gwinnett is expecting 162,000 students in the 2011-2012 year.

“Six Flags is always looking for ways to be involved in the community,” said Melinda Ashcraft, Park President.  “We could not think of a better way to say farewell to summer than by collecting school supplies for families that cannot afford these essentials for their children.”

Every year,
