Lots of smiles, laughter, and happiness as we explored the gym this morning.

What a great first day of the school year! On a whole, the children did amazing at separating and interacting in the classroom. We were even able to have a circle time with all of our friends sitting and singing together. Every day will get smoother and smoother- thanks for all of your help and support as we start the school year.
