First Day of School August 27, 2018

Well, its official!  School has begun, and summer break is over.  Granted the first day of school can be very exciting for some students, it can also be a time where worries and anxieties come into play.  This is also true for teachers and staff.

As we all walk into school today, just remember…its EVERYONE’s First Day today!   Smiling, saying hello and being kind goes a long way.  Remember to not judge a book by its cover and help those new students that look completed lost.  You too were completely lost at one point in your high school life.

I hope that today is a magical first day for EVERYONE!
