Yesterday was the first day of school for Melrose Leadership Academy at our new school site. MLA has moved from one Maxwell Park neighborhood site to another. Despite the move, the first day was a success.
Of course, the first day was still stressful. For some families, yesterday was their first day attending any school. Since MLA is a Spanish language dual immersion school, some families could not understand the teacher. Fortunately, many parents helped the new parents understand the transition.
I love first days. I remember being a kindergarten student and I remember each year that my children start school. What do you remember?
