Our little (big) first grader

First day of 1st grade

Emily started first grade today. Misty dropped her off at school and took a few pictures to commemorate the occasion.

A couple days ago, we went by the shool to drop off supplies, see Emily's classroom, and meet her teacher, Mrs. Avery. Emily had already met her though, as earlier this summer both first grade teachers paid a visit to each student's house to introduce themselves and deliver a welcome packet (which included a little book, a pencil box, and some other fun stuff for the kids).

Have you ever heard of another school doing something like this? It's exactly that sort of attentiveness that comforts me that Emily is in a good place. A lot of people in our area advocate moving to a "better" school district, but I think we're doing just fine where we are.
