My Big Boy in Big School!

Thursday of last week, June 14, 2012 was Justin’s first day in big school. He’s in Kindergarten 2, which is Senior Kindergarten in other schools and Preparatory Level in others. We rode his school service going to school. I said “we” because I accompanied him on his first, second and third day of school. Lol! I was the only momma in the school service, but I wasn’t ashamed because my son is the youngest student inside and because it’s his first time in big school. That’s perfectly understandable, right?

His classroom is so much bigger than his classroom in preschool. They also have their own comfort room inside the classroom, and I like that very much because my son pees a lot when he gets excited. This means he doesn’t need to go far to urinate.

There are 27 students in my son’s class. The students were assigned a class number (C.N.) that they have to remember and to write down on their activity sheets and test papers, together with their name, their grade and section, and their teacher’s name.

During the parents’ orientation last May 30, 2012, we were advised that parents are only allowed inside the classroom on the first day of class. Of course, I had my list of questions ready for my son’s classroom adviser, and I asked everything on my list.

On the second day, when I dropped him off to his classroom, we (the moms and yayas) were asked to leave the classroom right away even if classes hadn’t started yet. And on the third day, I wasn’t allowed to enter the gate of the Kindergarten 2 building.

The teacher’s assistants manned the gate and told our son to go to his classroom on his own. He obeyed, but he was back to the gate after just a few seconds to see me. That’s when one of the teacher’s assistants decided to accompany him to his classroom. He told me later that he cried when he entered his classroom because he said it’s his first time not to see mommy outside the classroom. This mommy was a bit sad, too.

Today is my son’s 7th day in big school, and he’s beginning to show interest in his classmates, teachers and new school. In fact, when he went home from school the other day, he said, “School is fun, Mommy!” I was happy to hear him say that! But he still asks this question every day before he rides his school service, “Is it going to be okay, Mommy?”And I always assure him that things are going to be fine.
