Youngsters and their parents descended on Ellington Elementary School in Quincy for the annual kindergarten roundup Friday. Kids who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1 will make up the new kindergarten classes in the fall.
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry.

He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
