School year kicks off in Lake Oswego
Hello pencils, hello books
Its the day a father lets go of his daughters hand when she arrives at her kindergarten classroom.
Its the day a sixth-grader nervously steps into what seems like a huge junior high building where she has her own locker and so much more room to grow.
And, its the day a young man feels like throwing open the front door of his school and striding through it like hes 10 feet tall, a senior at last.
Its the time-honored, all-important first day of school, full of jitters, thrills and fresh experiences.
Tuesday was day one for sixth-graders, ninth-graders and half of each kindergarten class to give them all a chance to adjust to unfamiliar surroundings.
The other students settled into their new desks on Wednesday when the other half of the kindergarten crew enjoyed their chance to rule the classroom. Today, kindergarten classes will be full.
There were cheers, tears, fears, pressure from peers and teachers talking to eager ears. All the hubbub heralds in the first week of the 2013-14 school year.
