My Facebook stream is full of pictures of kids on their first day of school. (That's great!) Sorry that I don't have a first day, or even a second day, photo to share.
The second day at our house featured a last-minute lunch prep (mac and cheese) and then two bicycle rides, one each for the 7th grader and for the 2d grader. The Burns Park school grounds were busy with a stream of parents and kids coming for dropoff; I haven't seen the new Summers-Knoll morning rush yet.
By all guesses it's going to be a good year.
Summers-Knoll School offers students rich academic experiences in an intimate and vibrant environment. Come meet the teachers, learn about our unique approach and tour our new building, located at 2203 Platt Road in Ann Arbor across from the entrance to County Farm Park.
Complimentary childcare for ages 4 and up will be available at our current campus at 2015 Manchester Road from 12:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Directions to 2015 Manchester Road will take you near the base of the Ann Arbor water tower visible from Washtenaw.

From Joanna's "Head of School Blog":
In our new building, paint is going onto the walls. The reading nooks looking out onto the courtyard are warm with color. The sun comes in through the huge windows and skylights, and every way you look there are views to the trees outside. The flexible learning spaces – the common areas, breakout spaces, front porches for the classrooms, the open library space – are everything I hoped they would be. The music and drama studio, the science lab, the art room, the classrooms; they are all spacious, bright, gorgeous places. Soon they will be alive with children and the hum of projects and great ideas.
Disclaimer: my son goes to Summers-Knoll School, and he's looking forward to having more kids in his age range, so I'm particularly eager to recruit 7th and 8th graders.
