A panoramic scene linking a pan from the cul-de-sac near the schoolyard on East 5th Street with a pan of Melissa 's first grade class on the second floor of the Robert Simon school. Melissa's class is West of the cul-de-sac. Some liberties are taken here since the classes' windows are on the opposite side of the building. *Melissa is Hyman Genee's granddaughter and a top-notch teacher.
