Some parents with Lincoln Public Schools kindergartens enjoyed a special event Tuesday morning, the first day of school.

They were able to walk their students to the classroom for day one and then took part in a Boo-Hoo Breakfast.

Five elementary schools hosted.

Campbell Elementary School Principal Julie Lawler explains, "It's just a nice way for parents to understand what Kindergarten is going to look like and maybe sound like.  Kindergarten will look very different from when they were in Kindergarten.  So it just helps communicate the expectations and also give them piece of mind knowing that their going to have a great time their first day of school."

Parents could also watch their kids in the classroom thanks to a camera the school set-up.

"I just can't believe this day is happening.  I can't believe five years have come and gone, it's just amazing," says Raquel Dean, this is her first child to enter kindergarten.

It's the same situation for Travis Phillips, he says, "Today was very exciting wasn't expecting to have a couple tears."

Odell and Sarah Santo have attended the Boo-Hoo Breakfast two years in a row, this year it's for their baby girl, "We're in that stage in our lives where they're going off to school, growing independently, and knowing that we're opening the next chapter of our life," says Odell.

This year's kindergarten class will graduate as the high school class of 2027.
