The first day of kindergarten can sometimes be more emotional for the parents than the students. At Trinity Elementary, every kindergarten parent was welcomed at the BooHoo/Yahoo Breakfast sponsored by the TES PTO.
After walking their child to the classroom, parents were invited into the cafeteria to grab some fruit, pastries and coffee and take a seat at the tables to meet and talk with other parents. The goal is to start building a community that will last throughout the year.
“The first full day with their kiddos in school can be emotional,” said Trinity Elementary PTO President Christy Sykes. “By having a place for the parents to share breakfast, they can cry or laugh with others who can understand what they are feeling.”
