What are your memories of the first day of school? Or if you are still in school, what have your first days of school this year been like?
I don’t have many first day of school memories, but I do remember my first day of kindergarten. Maybe it’s stayed with me because it was my first day of public school. I only had half-day kindergarten and went in the afternoon. I remember sitting at a table — kindergartners did not have desks — next to a girl named Cara Hughes. My mom said when I left that day, I had gathered the names of most of the kids in my class.
If you have some good memories, write them down. I wish I remembered more. I’d love for you to share your first day of school memories.
