Chris Catoe is in his first year at Buford Middle School and says he was nervous about starting school in a new place.
He had to deal with the prospect of bullies, while trying to make friends and concentrate on his work.
But since the start of school, the sixth-grader has excelled academically. He now speaks highly of his middle school experience.
“It was scary the first few days, but it’s good now,” Catoe said.
