Caitlyn's Class
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Caitlyn and her mother walked up to the front door. Caitlyn looked all around. There were other girls and boys everywhere! Caitlyn did not know any of them.
 
2     "Come on, Caitlyn," her mother said. "It's time for class."
 
3     Caitlyn was just a little bit afraid.
 
4     "Mom, I don't like this school. I don't know anyone. Can we please go back to Ireland? I liked my school there," she said.
 
5     "Now, Caitlyn," her mother said, "you know we are living here now. We will go back to Ireland to visit. This is our home, though."
 
6     Caitlyn and her mother walked into the office. Caitlyn held her mother's hand very tightly.
 
7     "Good morning," someone said. "May I help you?"
 
8     Caitlyn looked up. There was the biggest man she had ever seen. Now she was really scared.
 
9     "Yes," her mother said. "I am Mrs. Nolan and this is my daughter, Caitlyn. She will be coming to school here."
 
10     "It is good to meet both of you. I am Mr. Middleton. I am the principal."
