So first-graders at Douglas T. Orchard Elementary in Salt Lake City offered a little sage counsel to the new class of kindergartners this week. Among the guidance they offered:
g "Outline the picture first, then color it inside."
g "Put antibacterial on your hands so you don't get germs on your snack."
g "Here's how to make friends: Say, 'Do you want to be my friend?'"
g "Don't be afraid of your teacher. The teacher is always nice. If you don't know how to go to the bathroom, ask your teacher or kids. They can really teach you."
g "Work on getting friends on the first day of school. It doesn't matter how you dress."
g "Don't be nervous ... Your parents will come back and pick you up after school."
