It’s Transition Time Again….

It’s the end of the year and there are mixed feelings about summer vacation, saying goodbye to friends and thinking about next year. IST counselors do run transition groups for those students leaving IST, but we must keep in mind those students who are losing a good friend as well. The end of the year is an exciting time but the loss of the daily routine can present challenges for children.
Gr. 1 teachers will do transition activities in class that examine the year and reminisce about both the fun and tough times that have happened. Class parties are fun ways to celebrate the end of the year and all of the hard work accomplished.
We will do our best to help your child transition into next year, but we encourage you to keep him/her busy this summer with activities that encourage physical, mental and emotional pursuits. Please check IST websites that list online activities your child can do to practice some academic skills.
Have a wonderful summer break and best of luck to those leaving and see those returning next year! ☺
