Journaling: Carson, you are in a Grade 5/6 split this year, but with the 4 girls going to French Immersion, you are left with a class of 14 boys. There are a few girls in the Grade 6 class, but it is certainly a boy heavy class. The emotions are running high and everyone is trying to establish some sort of pecking order, which has led to many conflicts among your peers.

One day Lukas was mad you for something the teacher asked you to do, and it carried over after school. You told me that on the way home he came up and kicked you down for no reason. Now typically you a strong willed child and don’t let anyone walk all over you, but you are also a soft soul. So when I asked you how you responded, you said “I just walked away”. Carson, I am so proud of you and the way you handled that. I have seen you mature so much over the past 6 months, and you don’t seem to get caught up in the drama that happens regularly in that class. I am so pleased with the person you are becoming and love that you stay true to yourself no matter what anyone else is doing.
