In the back of our heads some us might be thinking, "when is our next school break," as we frantically and excitedly prepare for the 2018-2019 school year. Speaking of preparing, Indie has been very busy preparing for her final exam, the first day of school! Her semi-final already took place at enrollment and she did phenomenal! She met many students and found that they give good belly rubs!
In many ways, Indie has a lot in common with most students who are preparing for this school year. There will be new students, preschoolers, and kindergartners that will become part of our Tribe for the first time this year, just like Indie! Indie will be quite surprised come Thursday when she sees students at school! Imagine the students surprise when they see Indie at school! The moment will be memorable for everyone.
Even if you are a fifth grader who has been in the school district ever since you were a kindergartner or if you are a new student, it doesn't matter, we all are excited for a new year, a new beginning. We all (students and adults) have expectations and anticipations going through our head for this upcoming school year. Sometimes these feelings can make us anxious and we might begin to have butterflies in our stomach or frogs in our throat. If this is the case just know we are all in this Tribe together and will support one another! If you need to grab a quick drink of water, go for it! Water is the best way to wash the frogs down and to settle the butterflies! For those of us who have no worries for the first day of school, you are an inspiration!
In closing, Indie and I are looking forward to the students and staff members in the Fort Larned School District in having a safe, healthy, incredible learning experience for 2018-2019 school year! Go Indie Anne, oops I meant, INDIANS!!
I am a beautiful black lab who is privileged in being the therapy dog for Fort Larned Elementary School. I bring comfort and happiness to many elementary students.
