New challenges piog

My 8 y/o dd is starting 3d grade next year.  Here in our district, that means a new school.  Also, she has been placed in a gifted enrichment program that's held @ a different school one day a week, so two new schools & routines to get used to.  She is sometimes shy & quiet, & easily intimidated.  Also, I know she is bright, but I'll say it was a pleasant surprise when we got the notice about placing her in the program.  She seems eager for the challenge, & I definintely don't wanna discourage her or overwhelm her either.  How will I know if it becomes too much for her?

 If she seems more tired, has headaches/stomachaches for no apparent reason, starts to not want to go to school, won't talk about her day (if she does talk to you normally about it), spends more time than usual alone. . . 

If she's excited about it, that's a good sign : )  Sometimes our kids can really surprise us w/ what they can handle.

 Thanks, & I do hope she stays excited.  :-)  And you are right- my kids surprise me constantly.  :-)

Congrats!  She will likely really like the gifted pull out program.  But as pp said, if she starts getting overly irritable, not wanting to go to school, etc., talk to her about it.

Thanks.  I've heard comments from other moms on their PTO sight, that their kids really enjoy it.

I'm sure she'll adjust quickly. I was shy in school, but still adjusted quickly to changes.
