School has begun...
The first week of school at AVS for 2013-14 is now over and done with! The kids seemed to enjoy getting back to school and having a regular routine. The first day of school began with breakfast and an all school assembly. Mr. Bosk spoke for a few minutes, and introduced some new faces around the school. Then the teachers got up and called the children in their classes by name, and then they proceeded onto class. I have a daughter who started kindergarten this year, and when it was her turn she hopped up, ran up with her class without even a wave to me! She has been waiting for this day to come! I had to smile, when my son went off with his third-grade class, he made sure to give me that one last smile and wave before he went off for the day! When I picked them up from school later that day, they said they had a great day and they liked their teachers. So, I guess we are off to a good start!
