Harmon and his favorite gym coach David
We are at another transition point for Harmon. College Heights ends school at Kinder and so Harm is going to have to transition schools no matter what next year. We also are struggling because our little twins were born on August 28 and if we are going to red shirt (hold them back a year) them, now is the time to do so before they start kindergarten.
The hardest choice though I feel is Harmon. He is doing so well. He has tested on a second grade level for both math and reading. He has just done so well but it hasn't been easy. He is easily distractible and struggles to listen. His teacher, Mrs. Moon has been in education for about thirty years and she is the daughter of the founder of his private school. That wonderful woman runs a tight ship and I'm so grateful for her.
I don't believe in skipping grades for a child's emotional health. Chris feels private school is too sheltering for the kids. I think if we can find a program that is similar and teachers who with patience and love like we've had at College Heights is a great option. I worry because teachers in LCPS have a lot of students and it can be difficult to provide one on one attention to each student at a different academic and emotional level in each class. Than again Rachel has attended the DD-Pre at Mesilla Elementary for about a year now and the program is amazing. Mrs. Kelli and Mrs. Laura are truly the bomb diggitys of education.
No solution is perfect and it won't be easy. These are the times as a mom I wish there was a magic 8 ball to me the best solution. I'm so proud of my big little man and I want him to have the best.
