The First Day (and the last one, too)
"I bet we can all agree that the first day of a new school can be frightening, right? Well if you had that feeling you're not alone. I was so scared I was kind of crying! I turned and waved to my parents as we entered the building. I was nervous. New kids. New teachers. I had no idea what it would be like. Each day I started to feel more safe and even made some friends. After a few weeks I learned this was a great school and we had lots of privileges most schools don't get. And I was also happy that the teachers helped me try new activities. Thank you RHS for giving me the will to try new things and making sure I always feel safe."
