Capital Region kids head back to school

CLIFTON PARK - It's the first week of September, and just like swallows returning to Capistrano in springtime, students returned to their classrooms on Wednesday.

As day one begins for the new school year, it's interesting to note that all of these students were born in the 21st century, and that reality creates a unique distinction.


The annual parade of pupils into American school classrooms each autumn marks the first day of the rest of their lives. It also reveals a wide range of teenage emotions as varied as the 800 different members of Shenendehowa High School senior class.

For the record, kids entering kindergarten today are members of the class of 2032.

Hear from some students who returned at Shenendehowa High School, by watching the video of Dan Levy's story.
