Chelsea School District
English Language Learners
“This is the day you begin
to find the places inside
your laughter and your lunches,
your books your travel and your stories,
where every new friend has something
a little like you - and something else
so fabulously not quite like you
- from "The Day You Begin," by Jacqueline Woodson
