First Day of Kindergarten
Airdate: Saturday - September 13, 1969

WOR Show

Shep recalls his first day of school. Aunt Min was over that Sunday. The William McKinley school 2 or 3 blocks from the house. Bobby Twyman, a neighbor that he played with, was in Kindergarten with him and they went together that first day. A big fat lady in a purple dress with glasses - Shep's first memory of Miss Bundy! And shortly later he met a little boy named Schwartz and other kids named named Helen Weathers, Esther Jane, and Flick. He soon finds himself falling behind in school - over his own name! Miss Bundy insists his name is short for Eugene. Shep's disappointment in school that first day is that they do not have a reading period, but instead 'nap time' is introduced.
