First Day of Classes Can Equal Stress

Health experts say more than half of them will experience stress on the first day of school. But school officials have been preparing for their new students since the beginning of summer. They have an orientation for sixth graders and their parents in the spring. The number one cause of stress according to some sixth graders we talked to was meeting new people.
