It's the first day back to school for Utica Community Schools students, and adoring parents pull out the camera to chronicle the start of another year.
And who doesn't like to look at pictures of adorable, excited children? Patch certainly does. Take a look at some pictures from the first day of school last year and submit photos of the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
For instructions on how to submit a photo of your child, , or email your photo to Marina.Cracchiolo@patch.com.
