ALLISON PARK, Pa. (AP) — A Pittsburgh-area elementary school has a novel way to acclimate its kindergartners to the school experience — but it's not a technique that can be easily shared with other schools.
It's the fact that Burchfield Elementary School's brand-new kindergarten class has 10 sets of twins. That means 20 out of 100 pupils in the Allison Park school's kindergarten program started the year with at least one close friend.
Principal Jeff Rojik tells KDKA-TV (http://cbsloc.al/16Y7WWD ) that kindergartners are often nervous about starting school but says, so far, with so many twins "it's a nice transition."
Sally Engel says it's nice to have her brother, Cy, in the same class, saying, "Whenever you want someone to play with and you don't have anybody else, you've got somebody in your family — you have a twin."
