First Day Jitters...

For many of the school-age Capstone kids — the children of all of the employees here at Capstone — the first day of school is either today or Thursday.  We've all been shopping for supplies, we've met the new teachers (or will in the next couple days), and we've helped our young fashionistas choose their first day outfits. Everything is in order, yet we might be a bit nervous. At least, I am.

You see, my daughter, a third-grader, is moving up to the intermediate school. The kids are much taller, the school is much bigger, and she's been told that there are a LOT of bullies there. I can't help but worry she'll get lost in the hall. But I know she is going to be alright. She knows quite a few older kids, including her sixth-grade brother. And she is a happy, confident kid...a bit like our Katie Woo. And we all know that Katie Woo Rules the School!

Yet if my nerves get the best of me, I have the perfect antidote. The great staff at North Intermediate put this video together. It got my kids excited for school, and best of all, it made me feel confident that these great educators are excited and ready for a great year of learning. Happy first day of school!
