Fabulous First Day!

What a wonderful first day here at Mill Pond! In this case the early birds definitely got the worm! Getting started a little earlier got us off to a superb start with so many smiling faces walking up to our front doors, meeting their new teachers and getting to know their new classmates. There was a wonderful feeling of anticipation and excitement that could be felt throughout the whole building all day long. As students got situated in their new learning environments their comfort and confidence was evident. I was thrilled to meet so many happy students who were all so respectful and considerate. I am looking forward to meeting more tomorrow and each day this school year!
