First Day of School at B.A. Kennedy


Nervous, excited, scared, rambunctious—all those feelings are part of the first day of school, especially in those first moments as students meet their new teacher and classmates and march down the hallway to their classroom. The youngest of B.A. Kennedy’s students, the 4K kids, exuded all those emotions Tuesday, Sept. 2. (Photos by Correne Martin)

Parker Bedward and his classmates were full of questions as Mrs. Copsey’s 4K class sat together to learn about how their routine will start each and every school day at B.A. Kennedy.

Students in Mr. Shawn Zeeh’s first grade started their first day of school off with a tour of their classroom and a rundown of how to behave well in class. They were all ears.
