In an effort to explore the workings of a modern-day classroom and to show our readers the changing face of public education, The Herald-Mail is spending parts of the 2007-08 school year visiting with and writing about a fifth-grade classroom at Fairview Elementary School in the Waynesboro (Pa.) School District.

We will write stories monthly (and sometimes more often) about a variety of topics encountered by Mrs. Bobbi Blubaugh's classroom of 27 students.

Throughout the year, staff writer Jennifer Fitch will introduce you to Mrs. Blubaugh, the students and the staff, and we might even take a trip to the principal's office.

We'll talk to students about tests and homework and, of course, what they did on their summer vacation.

We selected the district and school at random, while Mrs. Blubaugh was selected by Fairview Principal Dianne Eberhardt.

Today's story focuses on the first day of school. More coverage, including photos, can be found on our Web site at www.herald-mail.com.
