Parents -- especially parent of kindergartners -- can have a difficult time letting go of students on the first day of school. Take their minds off the fact they're cutting loose those apron strings by putting on a special opening-day event. "We provide juice and muffins -- and Kleenex -- outside the front entrance of our school," said Dawn Neely, principal at Hendrix Elementary School in Boiling Springs, South Carolina. The Boo-Hoo Breakfast, which can always be moved indoors if it rains, offers a great opportunity for PTO members to meet parents of the school's newest students and to share with them news of special upcoming events and other ways they can get involved. The parents aren't parting with a child, they're gaining many new opportunities to be part of a very special school community!
