I wouldn't make a big deal about it. Read different books for the characters he likes who start school (Arthur, Franklin etc.) to show how they deal with going to school. http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html Click on School, Starting, Afraid Of
Some kids think they are missing something at home...so remind him you will be doing housework and will be ready to have fun with him when he gets home.
Take tour of school and meet teacher (one on one) in advance. Have a friend in class over before school starts so he is comfortable with one other student.
