Parents commiserate on first day of school

After dropping off their youngsters for their very first day of school, Ashley Falls School kindergarten parents headed to the Boo Hoo Breakfast to commiserate with fellow moms and dads. The school’s multi-use room was filled with cheerful decorations, smiley faces and brightly colored balloons but, just in case, a box of Kleenex was at each table.
