    I think that it would be very beneficial if all of the links in this article would open a new page rather than open over this page.

    As not only new to Connections Academy, but new to school in general because my son was just starting kindergarten and hadn’t even done any sort of preschool… this was such a scary and overwhelming start. I was so scared of it. And worried that I would have no idea what to do. We were also starting a couple weeks past the school’s start date. But I want to share that it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. We had and still have an amazing family connections coordinator that was available for me through emails and phone calls ALL the time. I was constantly contacting her through the enrollment process with so many questions. And my son’s teacher is absolutely wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher for him. She called me the day that enrollment went through and talked to me for nearly an hour. Answering all questions and ensuring that I was at ease and prepared. She was completely understanding of the fact that we didn’t have any of our materials from the school yet, and that I was overwhelmed because we were starting late. She ran the scheduler for me and made my son’s schedule for me. He is now going on his fourth week with Arizona Connections Academy and it just gets easier and smoother for me as a learning coach every week. The first week we definitely had some bumps and it was a lot to take in for me. Especially with trying to get my son in the routine of school. But it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be. The resources for learning coaches at this school are endless. And I have utilized them to the max. I still have a lot to learn and get the hang of. And am still working on getting our routine down fully. But like I said, it continues to get easier and easier as I get the hang of it, and as I utilize the amazing resources and wonderful teacher and connections coordinator. I know this was a long response, but I just really wanted to share for those that may be scared to do this and think they can’t, and for those that are overwhelmed and/or starting late. It’s definitely a choice I am 100% satisfied with and will absolutely be enrolling my son again next year!

    I am learning that it is very important to continually encourage your child throughout the school day and learning to reach out to teachers is the best thing to do if you have questions. They have been so helpful. When you are new it is expected that there will be times of apprehension and doubt. The best thing you can do again is ask questions. No question is a dumb question.
