Tonight I held my 3rd annual homeroom cookout for my upcoming 6th graders and their families. It was held at a local park at 6:30. We had hot dogs and hamburgers along with all the fixings. (which was donated by a local grocery store & the kids brought drinks, chips, and deserts) YUM! All but 4 families attended. I was satisfied! The weather has been very hot and I was worried about the turnout. The cookout is a great way to meet parents in an informal way. I have found that my parents enjoy the cookout just as much as the kids do. They too get to see old friends and reconnect.
I am interested in what you may do to get ready for back to school. Leave a comment.
