Time to hit the books! Suri Cruise started her first day of school in New York City Tuesday, and RadarOnline.com has a photo of the little girl being dropped off by her mom Katie Holmes, but her usually doting dad Tom Cruise was not by his daughter's side.
Suri, 6, is attending first grade at the Avenues School, a posh private school in Chelsea where tuition is a whopping $40,000 per year!
With her hair pulled back and a pink bow matching her pink back pack, Suri looked calm, cool and collected as she ventures out into the real world for her first day of school.
Katie looked somber as she chatted on her cell phone as the two were chauffeured to school, showing off a makeup free face.
Suri had a fun-filled summer in NYC, playing with friends, going to the zoo and gymnastics while her dad Tom whisked her off to the Hamptons and Disney World for luxurious vacations.
