As you started third grade today, you were both excited and nervous. You weren't alone. I'm sure all the kids shared those emotions along with you.
You were excited about your new teacher. You were curious about what you'd learn this year. You were nervous about making new friends and more.
I'm sure to some degree, you were thinking about this being your last year at the only elementary school you've ever known. I certainly know it was on my mind.
I know that making new friends is scary. I know learning new things can be hard. All change brings challenge. How you approach the challenge makes a huge difference.
I hope that you are able to focus more on the excitement than the fear that this new year brings. Regardless, I know you'll do GREAT!
Be open to what comes.
