BACK TO SCHOOL

Summer musings about the beginning of school

Liam Kavanagh, 9, a fourth grader at P.S. 89, can’t wait to play kickball when he gets back to school.

<<Joselinne Goodman, 6, says she is excited about getting homework and is also happy about the nice new teacher she’ll have when she starts first grade at P.S. 89.
>>Lindsay Holcomb, 10, is not happy about starting fifth grade at City Country School because she “likes summer vacation too much.” Her favorite part of school is recess.


Three students at the city’s first public school, P.S. 1 in Chinatown, enjoyed summer recess at Rockefeller Park. Left, Mabel Hui, 10, a fifth grader is looking forward to reading books in school. Christina Li, 8, center, a third grader, likes math and has a nice teacher. Her sister, Amanda Li, 10, said she is ready to start the fifth grade because “summer is really boring.”

We asked children playing in Washington Market and Rockefeller Parks where they will be going to school this year and what they are looking forward to.

Kiara Knox, 6, left, is going into first grade at P.S. 150 and is happy about just that. Daniel Mardkha, 3, goes to Park Preschool and likes his play group there.
