Back to School Q & A: With Gabe

Back to School Q & A: With Gabe

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.

What time did you have to get up this morning?

7 o’clock

Were you excited last night?

Uh huh! Yes!

What grade are you in?

1st grade? 2nd grade? No Kindergarten.

Did you pick out your outfit for the first day of school?

No, mommy did, it’s a Transformer shirt.

What did you have for breakfast?

English Muffin Bread Toast and cereal.

What is on your lunch box?

Spiderman and his eyes light up.

Did you ride a bus?

Yes and there were two crazy people in back of me and they kept bumping my seat. And I didn’t have to wear a seatbelt!

Everything and the Legos with a bat guy that flies.
