Ready to Learn


With backpacks on their backs and smiles on their faces, students across the District were eager to continue their educational journeys when they arrived at their respective schools on Sept. 1.

The first day of school brought about new experiences for all students, specifically those starting their first year of elementary, middle or high school. Summer orientations, assemblies and advisory sessions coordinated by teachers and administrators helped ease those transitions, and staff members were ready to help on the first day to ensure the school year was off to a successful start for all scholars.  

“The orientation really helped,” said Skylar Cox, a sixth-grader. “I didn’t have any trouble finding my classes today.”  

At the high school, a number of students were introduced to 10 new state-of-the-art science labs and computer rooms, which were constructed over the summer as part of an approved proposition. Also constructed at the high school this summer were new bathrooms, an elevator and other upgrades to ensure ADA compliance.
