Day one of school is in the books for many students across our area.  There are a few things your student was probably looking forward to, seeing their friends, teachers and starting a new grade.

Some were even excited to move into their new school for 4th and 5th graders.

A new school, a new class, and new things to learn. At Reidland Intermediate, teachers are focusing on how to make everyday as exciting as the first day of school.

Faculty rolled out the red carpet for the start of school and greeted students at the front door. Principal Paula Grubbs said this is their way of getting kids pumped up for the start of school.

“I want them to be excited and look forward to everyday and tell their parents this is what I did today, this is what I learned today,” said Grubbs.

Teachers, like Karla Lindsey are building up these 4th and 5th graders confidence.

“We are a little nervous the first day, just starting a new school,” said Lindsey.

Having fun, but also knowing when to buckle down.

“Be prepared to learn something new every day. Children enjoy learning and expect to learn, we are going to teach them something every day,” said Lindsey.
