The School Facebook Page and the Moms Who Post There

This year our daughters transferred from a small K-8 school to a large public middle school. To put the change in perspective, their current 7th grade class is about the same size as their entire old school. While the transition has been easier than I expected, it’s been strange to go from knowing most of the parents […]
