School Days Are Here!

I’m having a mixed feeling this coming school year.

My three grade schoolers went back to their previous school, at Lord’s Jewels Christian School. Among the many grade school they’ve been, this is the school that they want to go back with especially when they see the activities they used to do there — and it happened.

Read: We’re Moving Forward!

They will all be having the same schedule, from 7:15 am to 2pm, but a bit longer for the big brother and the big sister. Which means, I’ll be kid-free for about half of my day, five times a week!

I could only imagine the number of hours I can work with nothing but peace and quite. Actually, I’m about to make my schedule and post it on my workspace (oh wait, I don’t have a workspace yet)! I gave up my mini working table because we used it for the kitchen. I tried this makeshift working table instead but only for days because I am not comfortable and I know my laptop is at risk of falling once the kids accidentally pull this luggage. I went back working on our dining table and on the bed.

I’ll do my best to be done before the kids arrive from school so I can attend to them and help them with their studies. LJCS still use their zero-based grading system and it has been challenging for all of us before. I am thankful though that my kids, especially my daughter Erin, got used to that system and was even hailed Top 1 during the last two grading periods.

So there, that is actually what causes my stomach to churn sometimes when I think of my kids starting their classes this June 13. And it’s because I am a hands-on mom when it comes to my kids’ studies. New school (for my youngest), new classmates, new teachers and new lessons they should all study and learn.

We already bought them new school shoes and boy we got such a good deal with these! See? We got these for almost half of their prices!

  1. hi sis ask ko lang bakit mo nilipat ang mga kids mo from Greenland academy? hindi ba maganda ang turo dun? I read alot of feedback to that school.

    1. Hi Chrissha,

      Sorry for the late reply, no. Okay naman ang turo sa GA, advanced pa nga sila eh. During that time lang kasi na nilipat namin ang mga kids, we noticed na malayo sya from our place. Pagod na talaga ang mga kids pag uwi, and for other personal reason. I’ll send my reply thru your email add.:-)

  2. hello po, i would like to seek advice kse im looking for school for my son he’s 3, im also eyeing on LJCS for his first school or mas maganda kung sa playschool ko muna sya ipasok? like the one you recommend on your previous blog. any idea po on the tuition?

    1. Hi Tin,

      I highly recommend LJCS! I believed they will be providing air-conditioned rooms for their pre-school department. They also have affordable tuition fees compared to the previous pre-school I recommended (Light Bearer Child Dev’t). You may call LJCS thru their phone number 6587036 to ask for their current TF. Feel free to mention my surname if you will be asked where you got their info/number. Good luck and I hope we can bumped at each other if you decided to enroll your kid at LJCS. God Bless!

      1. mommy Mai, my son kse is a speech delayed child kaya were very keen on choosing a preschool for him. kung sa LJCS po ba konti lang ang students sa nursery class? ilang teachers po kaya sila per class? sa Light Bearer kse parang 7-10 students per class lang at 2 teachers. giid thing kse pareho silang Christian school.

        1. Tin, I’m not really sure how many students ang preschool sa LJCSI. Given your son’s condition, then I highly suggest Light Bearer. Yep, 7-10 and 2 teachers per class. True, they’re both Christian schools and iba pag sa Christian schools eh. Speaking for these two, I find my kids more God-fearing and mababait ang mga students:-) Let me know san ka nakapag decide okay!:-) God Bless.
