The days are getting shorter. The temperatures are slowly but surely cooling off and, much to the chagrin of children everywhere, back to school time is once again upon us.
Georgia Sparks said her twins Audrey and Andrew Clark differ in their readiness to enter the second grade.
“Audrey was ready to go back,” Sparks said. “She was ready when school ended last year. Andrew isn’t so excited. I started getting them in a routine about a week before school started. It’s made things so much easier.”
Kids aren’t the only ones who have to get back into a routine, and the faculty and staff at Fort Gibson Schools have been busy since the end of the last school year preparing for the upcoming changes in just about everything.
Angie Woolbright, an eighth-grade language arts teacher, said she’s been attending trainings in Tulsa and Oklahoma City this summer, and said she’s lucky because of that.
“We’re throwing pretty much everything out,” Woolbright said. “We’re starting fresh to make sure we uphold the new Common Core curriculum.”
