Law Meets Life–An Occasional Blog for Manchester Middle School Parents

So here it is, the very last day of summer vacation.  We’ve survived heat waves, hurricanes, supply lists, math packets, warnings about death by mosquito, coyote home invasions, and so many other things this year.  I’ve lost count of the number of math packets I have printed out and distributed this summer.  Has anyone else noticed that no one ever loses their “Black Ops” disk, but no child I’ve encountered has had one copy of the math packet all summer?  I guess doing page one five separate times has some advantages.  By the way, thank you to the Middle School teachers for getting these documents up on the website so early in the summer.  I know it helped me immensely.

As far as I can tell, we will once again be gathering in a long line of cars between 7:15 and 8:00 to drag the unwilling middlers back to class.  I’m sure there are some kids chomping at the bit to get back into the thick of their books and routines, and parents of those children,  I envy you.  I had one wise eighth grader point out that the first two days didn’t really count, so he still feels like he has a week of vacation left.  I thought that was a great way of looking at things…

And to think that I used to love going back to school, what a geek.
