Default Any Hints/Ideas/Suggestions?

My eldest son will be going to sixth grade next year and I'll still have four in Elementary.

Any hints/ideas/suggestions to make this a positive experience for all?

The best part is eldest son has Aspergers, ADHD and Adjustment Disorder and hates getting up so early, this means he can sleep in an extra hour!

Different school? Meet the teacher early. Tour the school. Email w/ teacher to make sure you're on the same page when it comes to him and any interventions he may need and/or his 504/IEP. Keep his routine consistent. Maybe his own alarm clock since he gets to get up at a different time than the others?

I'd maybe touch base with the teacher first. You can get a feel for her personality. Ask her some questions about how she'd handle certain things that may be an issue.
Hopefully it works out! I hope the transition goes smoothly.

Sorry, my kids got out of school at the end of May so it has been crazy around here.

The teachers don't go back until the week before school starts and they haven't decided teachers yet. I'm calling the guidance counselors on the 7th (when they come back from break) and setting up a meeting with them.

I want to have each of the kids go in a minimum of twice to quickly meet the teacher and learn where all the extra classes are (in the case of my K'er)

For T, I was told by someone that they wouldn't allow me to have him meet with the teachers multiple times, etc....

So, I'm going to be sugary sweet and point out that they can either let me do it or prepare for meltdowns because that is what happened the first two weeks after we put him in public school.

Update:

He is doing awesome! He is even doing well getting up at the same time as the other kids and just having some alone time first thing in the morning.

I haven't heard anything from any of his teachers so I'm going on the "If there is no news, it is good news."
