It's June, This month students and parents are busy preparing for the opening of school year in our place. Parents enroll their kids and buy school supplies needed by their kids. The students start to practice waking up early again in preparation of early class schedule. In our home there are different ways of preparation during the opening of class.I observe that college students enroll early and keep on sleeping or enjoying the last few days before their class started.The high school and elementary students are excited and keep on discussing what kind of notebooks and papers they will buy. One week before the classes start high school students had prepared what to wear and what to bring. How about you how do you prepare for the opening of new school year?

Summer vacation has just started here for us but to prepare for the coming first day return to school we will look on line at the supply list as different grades require different items. Then we will shop for these items, new book bag if needed and new clothes. Theres always some orientation a few days before so that students can get acquainted with their new school or new teachers and class mates.

i'm not that excited for school..haha since i'm an incoming 4th year High school and our school has this law that if you're an old student you don't really need to enroll just pay the tuition fees and stuff before school stars.. anyways..we have our own school notebook so that's what we use..(I think it's actually better,cause we don't have to rush buying school stuff yet I kind of miss buying notebooks with all those pretty designs). I bought tons of pens(black ones especially with tip points), paper,file case,a small pencil case,new bag,bought books and notebooks and ink for our printer..haha since i'm a teen I make sure that my hair looks good on the first day/first week and makes sure that my uniform is clean and ready to wear.. :)

I have enrolled my son for his third grade on elementary, we are busy buying new things for this school year, new bag, new shoes, new polo and shorts. One of his classmates called him up that he is no longer using the trolley bag because they are old enough and it would be shameful. Since he was convinced to buy a backpack, that is why I need to buy him a new bag. New uniform because he gained weight so all the uniform he has would not fit him at all.

i'm actually more excited than my daughter who's gonna be a nursery this school year. since the first day of May we trained her to sleep early. we usually settle down by 10pm cause my husband would go home late from work but parents should lead as an example so we've agreed to sleep earlier so that my little girl will get used to it. next week their classes will start, i have already washed and ironed her cute uniform

Well, I just enrolled like 3 weeks ago. Before anything, I want to enjoy the last days of summer. I plan to rest and get some good last minute stuff. Well, all i need is one small notebook heheheh Since, most stuff are found on the books. And before it starts, I plan to make goals and keep them. I need to pass, I can not afford to fail any subject.

I have enrolled my kids to a Christian school near our place and of course, there's the list of requirements to complete and I already bought them all. There's the uniform and so I had it tailored to fit them well. The shoes are ready, as well as the bags, well the only people not ready to go back to school yet are my kids.
