Florencio Martinez is excited to begin his very first day of school as mom and dad, Alma and Bud, escort him into Beaver Dam Elementary School’s Kindergarten class on Monday, Aug. 12. Sister Esther is a first grader this year and an old pro who doesn’t seem quite as eager but is ready to show her little brother the ropes. Photo by Teri Nehrenz
