Kindergartners and parents get first glimpse of classrooms before starting school

In Sioux City, those getting ready to begin school for the very first time were able to meet their classmates and teachers a few days early with a “Boo-Hoo, Yahoo Celebration”.

This breakfast for incoming kindergartners and their parents hopes to help ease the nerves of the very first day of school.

“We know that when they meet their teacher, they know that we are going to really care about them, but we want them to really feel that and we want their parents to feel that from day 1,” said Unity Principal Eric Kilburn.

Principal Kilburn made a pancake and sausage breakfast for everyone. Unity’s first day, along with the rest of the Sioux City School District, is August 23rd.
