School's Out for Summer

As I've previously mentioned Wednesday was the last day of school for Noah. It was also his last day as an elementary school student! He will transition into the middle school program at his school in August. Since his school is a school exclusively for children with special needs and houses all grades, he won't be actually changing schools. He'll just be in a different part of the school and have different teachers. I'm a little nervous about the transition because he doesn't like change but hopefully he’ll adjust quickly. This past year of school has (in my humble opinion) been one of his best. He has grown so much and come so far in the past year. His behavior is just a total 180 of what it was at the start of the year. Don't get me wrong, he's not perfect - he still has bad days but they are a lot less frequent now.  So, what do we have planned for the summer? Well, each summer Noah attends a day camp through his school. It only lasts a month and is Mondays - Thursdays from 8:30 - 12:30. He gets all his summer therapy there. He always enjoys it.  During the time before camp starts and after camp ends we do "Momma school." It's something we started a few years back and Noah loves it. We spend about an hour a day doing "Momma school" and we read books, learn new things, review old things, work on his IEP goals, do art projects, etc...


  1. Work hard Noah... You'll do fine in Middle School, I know you can do it! I had to learn a new building, and new classes, and find my way. Not easy when you can't read the room numbers!!! (Back then room numbers where very small above the doors)...

    You'll do fine buddy! :)

  2. So glad Noah had a great year! Hope you guys have a great summer. Sounds like you will be having alot of fun. Jennifer
