The first day of school . . . is a pretty BIG day for students, parents and teachers, parents take pictures of their children to mark the first day of school. Students dutifully have their pictures taken, give last hugs and boldly go to a new year with new teachers and new friends. Teachers welcome students as they boldly or meekly come into their classes. For some Teachers this is old hat, for others it is a first, but for all teachers this is a new day! A day to discover who each person is, a day to be BIG!
Every year there seems to be a theme to a school year, last year was the year of the "Pirate" this year it is "Art City Big". Based off of a story book "Big" by Coleen Paratore and illustrated by Clare Fennell. The book talks about when you were little you wanted to be BIG. It talks about how you measure yourself in things and years. The book goes on to tell how "Those People are wrong." It is more; it is bright, healthy, imaginative, kind, helpful, valuable, earth aware, and community aware. "Every year, every person . . . gets 365 presents . . .
