Dear Holly: Orientation for Starting 1st Grade

6 years, 3 months.

Dear Holly,

Last night was a big deal for you.

We went to go meet your teacher for 1st grade. When she asked you if you are looking forward to the new school year, you were surprisingly honest.

With a smile, you told her, “I’m actually a little bit nervous about it.”

She responded, “You want to know a secret? I’m a little nervous too!”

Your brother confirmed that you actually have the best 1st grade teacher at your school.

And really, I think that’s the reason you’re nervous:

Because unlike last year, your brother won’t be at the same school as you; now that he’s starting Middle School.

But I know you will love 1st grade once it starts!
