Alex's First Day

Today was a big day for Alex. It was his first day of school at Roosevelt Elementary! Last spring we had him screened for the Transitional First Grade (T1) program within the Vancouver School District. This program is designed for older kindergartners (must be 6 by December) that may be ready for a full day of school, but don't have the foundational skills for the first grade. He had a great day, and here are some noteworthy facts he reported when he got home....

They get 2 recesses!
Ms. Pulham (his teacher) has a daughter named Allison.
He would like to have his friend Morgan over to play.
There are two Zacharys and two Andrews in his class.
Brandon shared his skittles with Alex at lunch.
Ms. Pulham read the book, Franklin Goes to School.
It was Amber's birthday, and she brought cupcakes.
The sink in the bathroom has a pedal, and three people can wash their hands at the same time!
They have 170 something days left.
They are going to practice writing their names, addresses and telephone numbers.

Tomorrow is Allison's first day of Preschool. Check back for an update on her....
