When do they go back to school? August 29th
What grade will they be entering? Xavier will be in the 1st grade, Derrick will be a sophmore in HS
Have you gone back to school supply shopping? I get to do that this weekend via online
School clothes shopping? DONE
Does your school provide school lunches? They do... however, the high school is on the main post so they are allowed to leave the school for lunch and eat anywhere they want
How much are they? I have no clue - they change every year. I think it's $2.30 or something. Derrick gets about $20 a week for lunch to spend how he wants.
Do they pack or buy? Xavier is so picky he will probably pack for the most part.
What time does school start/end? 8:10a-245pm
Do they ride the bus? Xavier is at the cdc so he gets walked over. Derrick will either ride the bus, ride his bike or ride with us in the morning, depending on his mood.
How do you feel about your school system? I love the school system on post. The high school is great and Derrick is doing very well here. Xavier has been there 2 years (Sure Start and Kindergarten) and so far it's been good for him as well.

Those with school age kids
When do they go back to school? Sept. 7th
What grade will they be entering? PreK
Have you gone back to school supply shopping? Not yet
School clothes shopping? Not yet, it'll be warm here still then so he'll still be in shorts at first probably.
Does your school provide school lunches? Yes but not for PreK because it's only for 2 1/2 hours
How much are they? Don't know
Do they pack or buy? When he starts kindergarten he'll pack
What time does school start/end? I'm not sure yet for him.
Do they ride the bus? He can. We live about a 5 minute walk from the school but they bus PreK kids even when they are close. We he starts K he'll have to walk.
How do you feel about your school system? It's okay. I went there my whole life and I taught there as well. I think education is what you make of it. You can get a great education just about anywhere if you're willing to put the work into it. You can also go to a great school and end up with nothing if you aren't willing to work.

When do they go back to school?
August 29th
What grade will they be entering? 7th, 5th, and 3rd
Have you gone back to school supply shopping?Yes Emely and Ashleigh are done. We're not sure about Madisyn we lost her list, and none of the stores have it. No one at the school is answering the phones and they don't have it online. So we're just getting stuff and hoping some of it is what she needs.
School clothes shopping?No we haven't started this yet.
Does your school provide school lunches?yes
How much are they?We normally get free or reduced ($.40) lunch and breakfasts. If we had to pay full price I think they're around $1.50 or $2.00
Do they pack or buy?Ashleigh packs, Madisyn and Emely normally buy unless they're having something they don't like.
What time does school start/end?Middle school (madisyn and Ashleigh) starts at 7:40am and Ends at 2:35pm. Elementary (Emely) starts at 8:40am and Ends at 3:30pm.
Do they ride the bus?This year Emely will. I will drive Ashleigh and Madisyn. Ashleigh plays the baritone in the band and it's to hard getting it on and off the bus.
How do you feel about your school system? I like the elementary. Middle school teachers stink. They turn a blind eye to bullying.

How do you feel about your school system? local school system is ok- I work there so I know that a lot is done to be sure all the kids are learning at their pace and pass the end-of-grades as well as give emotional support. I'd say it is pretty good. Hugo is in a private preschool though.

How do you feel about your school system? I *hate* the system here, but I got lucky with Thomas' school. Other than not many parents being involved I love Thomas' school. The teachers and staff are amazing. I'm just hoping the higher grades are as great as the lower. Grades pre k 3 through 2nd are in their own wing of the school, 3rd-6th are in their own, and 7th and 8th are on the 2nd floor away from the "little kids"
