First day of 9th Grade

By Robin Dearing

Here's Margaret as she was getting ready to leave for her first day of 9th grade:

Super cute, indeed!

Her first day went fine. She's pleased with most of her courses and has friends with whom she can eat lunch. She's going into this year with a better attitude and is focusing on her school work and trying to stay out of the drama (if that's possible among teenaged girls). 

But this morning, she was so tired, she put her head down on the table instead of eating. I'm feeling it, too. We have to get up much earlier than last year because we have a longer drive to get her to her new school.

Maybe it's because I'm tired, but I'm so irritated with the school district. Could someone please explain why high-school kids need to start school at 7:25? Elementary kids start at 8:50. Why not move high-school start time to 8 a.m.?

Not sure how they picked who was first but I know they have variable start and end times so buses can be used for more than one route. My guess is after school activities are why middle and high school are earlier.
