I suppose you can rest assured that he would be able to figure out how to contact you if he did get injured or have some other problem. Of course, not being late for pre-Clone Wars activities may be more motivating than anything else.

School can be such a fraught issue, even when things are going well. I hold my breath a lot--and we're already nervous for middle school. But how nice to know that there are adults who continue to look out for him even when he's not their ward.

Things have an annoying way of always changing, yes? But maybe middle school can be something to look FORWARD to?! I certainly hope so.

It is reassuring to know that he can summon help when needed AND that there are so many adults who care about him, too...middle school--I'm dreading it.

If and when you're ready, I have a story about one of my student's and what worked for him in middle school. His mom actually transferred him from a school that put him in all pull out classes and he had a unique schedule at the one he went to. It was a success story in the end I think.

Thanks, Omaha. I'm not ready yet, but I'll take a raincheck on that story--I really would love to find out more.
