First Day at Steen

7-September-2018
   On Thursday-6-September the Public Schools of the Bogota Board of Education started their 2018-19 school year. At the Steen School Students and  Families gather in the playground off Orchard Terrace. The Students, Teachers, and Parents greeted each other and shared stories of the past Summer. The Students renewed last year friendship, compared backpacks, and  talked to former Teachers from past grades. Teachers, and Parents asked each other about how their old Students are doing. Some just moving up a grade while others have left Steen and now begin the secondary phase of their Education. A few Parent introduced new siblings to the Teachers, and Friends who will soon be joining in this ritual.
  Then the Students then found the lines of their grade and assigned Homeroom teacher.  The Students in Kindergarten, and First grade were now entering a new World without their Parents. The Teachers introduced themselves to the new Students and hope they will have a good time in the year ahead. The Sixth Grade Student showed their excitement in getting this new and final Steen year started, and were they will be in the future.
 Finally the time came to enter the Building. The older Student had this routine committed to memory, even if a stray Lunch box, or other item was also left behind. Other Younger Student  needed a little more convincing to enter these doors. Some had to have one re-ensuring hug from their Parents. Or even the physical act of a Parent holding the small hand and passing to this new Adult  in their lives.
 With the last Student inside Parents slowly returned to their day stopping on the way to the other Parents who had just shared the same experience.
