Stacy Hill, a kindergarten teacher, talks to one of her new students, Abrianna Pearson, during Bardstown Primary's Kindergarten Kickoff Tuesday.
Mixed emotions

Sitting atop a royal blue carpet at Bardstown Primary, Abrianna Pearson eagerly played with various toys while her parents sat at a table nearby filling out paperwork.

A few minutes passed before Pearson’s new kindergarten teacher, Stacy Hill, knelt beside her to introduce herself and asked if she could take a photo of Pearson to hang in her future cubby hole.

As Hill took a photo of her future student, Pearson’s parents finished some of the last steps before sending their first child off to kindergarten.
