Students are excited to get back into the school groove again, as they line up outside for the first day of the new school year. Their backpacks are filled with brand new supplies for them to use as they cheerfully start a new day of learning. Some parents were with their children as they waited anxiously for the school bell to ring. Final kisses, hugs and goodbyes were exchanged before they marched into school with their classmates to begin their new year of learning experiences.
