How do you get your kid excited to go to school?

“My daughter just started first grade and she throws a huge fit every morning because she doesn’t want to go to school. She cries and refuses to change her clothes or take a shower. It’s always a fight and we have to put her clothes on for her. Once she’s at school she seems to be fine. It seems like separation anxiety to us, but have any other parents found a solution?”
