As Ryan Buchanan lead his mom, Toni, by the hand into his first-grade classroom at Soldotna Elementary Thursday, his eyes lit up with excitement.
“Let me show you my desk mom,” he said. “And this is where I keep my gym shoes.”
Toni said it was important for her to attend her son’s open house event to get a feel for his classroom and meet his teacher. She said it was also important to get a snapshot of his daily routine.
“So we can carry that on at home,” she said. “He loves school.”
