Today was the first day of school for the 2009 school year at Gwendolyn Brooks Elementary School! But for Kindergarteners this meant their orientation to their new teacher, classroom and getting their things settled a bit.
Kylie enjoyed the hour of meeting Mrs. Porter and exploring her new home away from home for the next 8 months- Room #127! Her favorite part of the classroom was the play kitchen that she and Peyton enjoyed breaking in as the rest of the "Q-Z" last names in her class arrived for the session. Kylie was also a great helper putting all of her school supplies in the right bins and putting the rest of her things where they were to go.
As the kids quietly colored pictures set up for them at the tables, the Mommies & Daddies got a quick review of all of the information we would need to have a smooth start to the school year for our little ones. Lots of final details about what items were needed each day, communication processes, snack, lunch , walking/riding/busing transportation information, the class schedule...good thing Mommy had her listening ears on because we defiintely needed to have this all straight when we got back home!
After listening to Mrs. Porter read "Twas the Night before Kindergarten" and not wanting to leave after our session was over, I think it's safe to say that Kylie is just a little bit excited for her 1st full day of school tomorrow :)!
