Lessons of an Atenista mom: Prep series September 15, 2012

So its’s September already and my son has been going to Ateneo  for 3 months now. It seems to me he’s adjusted and doing fairly well – better than we expected :p We have also adjusted and learned a few things along the way:

  • 6 am is not a bad time to drop off your son. If you think, it’s too early… it’s NOT. A lot of kids are there by 6am!
  • expect homework everyday!
  • but doing HW everyday lessens the intensity for which you have to review for exams – which is a good thing, right?
  • check your son’s PALS and GLTP folder and sign your QCs! –> what do these mean? you’ll find out 🙂
  • snacks should be placed in reusable food containers.
  • have extra nameplates and level patches made and in stock. They wear their khaki uniform 3x a week, so have 4-5 pieces done in case they lose their uniform or bring home someone else’s uniform – yes it has happened in the span of 3 months.
  • buy pants that are 2-3 inches longer so you can adjust mid-year
  • pencils and erasers will get lost, crayons diminish over time so have extras in stock
