Last year, when Tracy Cochran sent her daughter, Avery, to middle school for the first time, both of them were terrified.
“Just the thought of going to middle school, and the stories that you sometimes hear,” Tracy said, “I was very, very nervous.”
She said both of them were in tears. Avery’s transition from Calvary Elementary to Lebanon Middle School felt like too much for both of them.
“I was scared that my old friends wouldn’t be my friends anymore,” Avery said.
