Do you remember the butterfly feeling you had on your first day of Day Creek? That lost confusion filling your brain? Your first day of school can be pretty petrifying. The the new teachers, new classmates and mostly, the new school. (cue shivers)

A transfer from Windrows Elementary, Kennedy N. is a new 6th grader here at DCIS. One of the reasons she enjoys it here is her new friends. Friends certainly help make school fun! Though the homework was what she was worried about. It is some heavy duty stuff. If she could, Kennedy would go back to elementary because “elementary was a little easier.” Wouldn’t we all like a trip back to finger painting in kindergarten, where all you had to do was learn the alphabet, and know how to count to 100.

Almost everyone is tense on their first day, but not Sharon L. She is a confident 8th grader who believes that just because they are the oldest, 8th graders aren’t the leaders of the campus.  “We’re all human,” she said. Aside from the common first-day jitters in 6th grade, nerves are a foreign concept for her now at DCIS.“I was pretty nervous in 6th grade, but now I am just very happy to be here!” she said.

If only all of Day Creek felt Sharon, her words of wisdom for the 6th graders? “Just be confident and you can make anything possible if you believe…don’t be scared, go ahead, make friends and your life can be great!”
