A new pack on his back, Mikkel Garcia, 5, of Vacaville, trudged along Cambridge Drive late Wednesday morning, his father, Alan, and grandmother, Carole, beside him.

A fan of video games, his long hair in two braids, the incoming Cambridge Elementary kindergartner — clad in a black T-shirt with tuxedo imagery over black shorts and black tennis shoes, all new — made his way to Kathryn Carter-Stewart’s classroom at 11:30 a.m., 10 minutes before the first bell of the Cambridge Drive school’s afternoon kindergarten session.

“He’s nervous,” said the elder Garcia, the father of two other Cambridge students.
