By lunch time on Wednesday several kindergarten students at Pennycook Elementary School had already learned to recognize their names and use scissors.
A smooth opening day for the Vallejo City Unified School District.
About 600 general education students arrived at the school, as thousands more around the city began the day with yawns and chances to make new friends.
“I’m very excited to see our Pennycook scholars,” said Pennycook Principal Kimberly Mitchell-Lewis. “The theme for this year is truth, learning, creativity, and talent.”
