Hi all, We are moving in August from Fremont to Dublin and moving our 6 year old daughter from a academically challenging private school in Fremont to second grade in a public elementary school in Dublin-we'll be going to Kolb Elementary in Dublin. Both my husband and I grew up outside the US so have no experience of the public school system. We would really appreciate advice about:
- Managing the transition from the private school, which had a curriculum that was a grade advanced than public school curriculum. My daughter likes being challenged and is very curious. How do I ensure she remains motivated and excited by academics in her new school?
- How can I make make the transition easier for her socially? She is not happy about leaving her friends behind in Fremont. What can I do as a parent to help her fit in socially in the new school?
- We are moving to a new community so the neighbors there will all be new to the area as well. I'm fairly introverted and shy and don't make friends easily. I have a small group of friends where I live now. I don't think we'll be meeting up much when we move to Dublin. Any advice for how I can begin to build a social connection in Dublin in the new community would be very appreciated.
Thanks! Moving blues mama
