During recess someone came up to me and asked what my name was.
My name is Claire Burnett
Really? I heard you died last year!
That's when Elyse explained everything to me. I was registered as a student for 3rd grade but because of multiple arguments between my divorced parents I ended up going to my old school one more year. Because of this my name was on a desk. Many students thought that I died in a car crash over the summer, they called my desk caspers desk.
We talked about it the rest of recess and in the hallway. I thought that it was the funniest thing I've ever heard.
That's awesome! I'm a legend and I just got to this school
The rest of the day I met more new people and made new friends. I had a great time telling people that I didn't actually die. It was a great first day.
When my dad picked me up at 3:55 I eagerly told him all about my day.
