FAIRFIELD — Instead of parents and children wandering the halls, hoping to find the right classroom, the blacktop area at Cambridge Elementary in Vacaville was the place to be Wednesday morning as the classes lined up before the first bell.
Hugs were given, tears were shed and kids met their new teachers as Travis School District classes got under way. Also running around the masses was new school principal Susan Nader, who was also busy learning names and faces. Helping direct traffic was Glenda Biondi, wearing a bright orange vest, which got the attention of many looking for the right spot to stand.
“We can socialize out here and the teachers can pick them up,” Biondi said. “We try and have fun and it gets them relaxed.”
