The middle school shares a building with the high school. The first words out of Weston's mouth were:
"Mom, the girls in this school are so pretty!"
I suddenly realized that my son was becoming a tween! Those awful awkward years between elementary school and high school. I am happy to report that we have had a good start. Weston is on an IEP and we have put some supports in place to help him become more successful at school.
One of these supports is providing him with a mentor. A high school student named Matt who visits with Weston during his last class of the day, an Enhancement class, where he receives extra help in his Language Arts and English classes.
So far, it has been a very rewarding first month for Weston, thanks to Matt.
Fingers crossed that it stays that way.
