Sad Students Bid Adieu To Summer

"I haven't been to school for three months and I'm excited to see my friends again," says Riley, a Chief Joseph Elementary fourth grade student. The building was all abuzz on the first day of school. Students meeting old friends, parents saying goodbye, and kindergarten students crying for their mothers, were all a part of the show. Rebecca Yeager is sad to see her third grader out of the house all day. "To see the summer end is a little hard, but it's also kind of nice to see him grow up and start a new fresh year and learn some new things this year," says Yeager/Adam Behrman, KBOI. More here.
