Once pictures were taken,-I’m amazed that even with today’s technology, school pictures are still as bad as they were when I was in school-and choir dresses picked up the girls took out there schedules.
Their goal was to find their lockers, drop off a few essential items-meaning pictures, a locker sized disco ball and some pens- and find all of their classrooms. As 8th graders, the girls are now in the upper middle school, which is just for 8th and 9th graders. The school is, as you can imagine, huge.
With two wings that hold four “houses” of each grade, with a map firmly in hand, we trolled the corridors looking for each classroom. After a few twists and turns, I felt like we should leave a trail of breadcrumbs to find our way out. I know after the first few weeks the girls will be flying down the corridors, no map required.
The girls are equal parts excited and nervous. This is the first year they will have no classes together and their lockers are two corridors away from each other. They will only see each other at lunch.
It is going to make for an interesting year, I am sure.
What are your middle school or just plain school memories.
