School’s in session!

Three-year-old Angelica Gonzalez (above) had the play yard to herself Wednesday

as her mom was tied up getting sister Cassandra, a third grader, set up on the

first day of school at Kapa`a Elementary School. Meanwhile, the prospect of

getting lost didn’t seem to worry first grader Jacelyn Fliegel (far left)

because she had mom Blanche and sister Leeana, 3, to help her find her

classroom at the school. Jacelyn is transferring from King Kaumualii School

but didn’t mind the “short” summer vacation she enjoyed before school

started up again for her. Mom said Leeana wanted to go to school, too, so she

had to leave home with two separate backpacks.
