The first day of school is always a big event. For younger children and their parents it is both exciting and scary, while for older children it is a dreaded date that signals summer vacation is officially over. We had the opportunity to sit down with one local student and get his views on his first day of school. Meet Gabe, a 5-year-old who was eager to share his story.
