DERBY - The first day of school is always a big day for youngsters but for a kindergartner it must be overwhelming, with all those big people saying good morning and asking you your name, and more.
I cried on my first day of kindergarten at High Plains School (now Community Center) in Orange. And I even had my best friend with me in the classroom. She wasn't scared at all.
I on the other hand was petrified, probably because I hadn't had any preschool experience.
Or maybe it was because I was an only child. My friend Suzy was the oldest of "many."
Here's to a great school year for students everywhere.
