Going Back to School

Today is the first day of school for Mark. He thinks that seventh grade is very interesting. He starts school today. He is happy because he will see all his friends again.  He will have a new teacher and perhaps some new classmates. Mark is really excited to see all his friends from the sixth grade. When they see each other they greet and talk about their summer vacation. His mom takes him to school at 9:00 in the morning. He brings his lunch.  It is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, an apple and carrot sticks. He buys his milk at school. His mom told him he could buy chocolate milk if he wants to. He loves to drink chocolate milk. His mom will pick him up at the end of the day. She is excited to hear all about his first day of school.
