They are no longer preppies like the previous year and are YEAR 1 students! Quite a few operational changes in their class as they no longer have a teacher aide, are expected to be more independent and have their own stationary tray.
Daniel was overwhelmed by the busyness of Day 1 drop offs, new teacher, new classroom, new classmates, etc. I would too! He bawled his eyes out when it was time for me to leave them. His teacher took his hand while I slipped away very quickly. Never linger.
