This is our final week looking at the asset support category. This week, students at Los Alamos Middle School along with Vice Principal Rex Kilburn and Student Council Advisor Jon Pyle are visiting elementary schools to talk with sixth-graders who embark on a new adventure next year.
The current seventh-graders are alumni of the school they visit that day. The beauty of the project is that it allows timid sixth-graders to hear from their peers about the middle school experience.
The questions are exactly what you expect, but the answers might be different than if they were delivered from just the adults. You never know how very frustrated a pre-teen can be about not being able to open a locker until you hear it straight from the Hawk’s mouth.
As adults we realize that getting your locker open isn’t the end of the world. You only have to talk to an adult who can solve the problem with a key and get a hall pass from Miss Claire. In the heat of the moment, the world is ending because my homework is due, the bell has rung and I still have to go to the bathroom, but alas, the locker is still locked.
We tend to forget that trial-and-error is part of the experience and the middle school is addressing some of those areas six months before the new seventh-grade class ever steps foot on the middle school campus.
