Excitement ran high throughout the district as students in grades K-6 arrived with backpacks in hand on Sept. 5 for the start of the 2017-18 school year. Clear Stream Avenue, Forest Road and Shaw Avenue Elementary schools warmly welcomed their students back as they hugged their loved ones goodbye and met their new teachers.

Administrators and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nicholas Stirling greeted the students as they made their way into the buildings. Teachers introduced themselves, students met their new peers and learned their classroom routines throughout the day. 

In addition, all three schools held a PTA breakfast for families who recently joined their school community. This gave them the opportunity to meet others, learn about the PTA members, the upcoming events taking place and how they could get involved.
