A day of anxieties, rules, new faces, hope – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Standing with friends near the school office, Kaylee Sendejas, 11, a fifth-grader at Gretchen Higgins Elementary in Dixon, pointed to her name and her teacher’s, Matt Banuelos, on a class roster affixed to a window. She giggled and smiled, matching the high youthful spirits of those clustered around her.

For Sendejas — with less than 10 minutes before the school bell’s first loud ring on the first day, at 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, marking the start of the 2017-18 academic year in Dixon Unified — it was a morning with many possibilities mixed with an equal amount of anxieties.
