Maine-Endwell students and staff started the 2018-19 school year with celebrations, smiles and hugs on Sept. 6.
At the Middle Schools, it was a celebration as students were greeted with falling confetti, balloons and music. Sixth graders headed to their lockers to find inspirational messages posted on them from their older classmates.
High School students began their day with class meetings and an activity fair before heading to their regular classes. Ninth graders were made to feel welcome when they received personalized notes from the school’s student council members. Mrs. Tye’s classes bonded over a STEM activity that had them working together to solve a problem.
At Maine Memorial and Homer Brink, students were greeted by their teachers as they entered the school and then made quick work of unloading their backpacks and organizing their desks. Students got acquainted with their teachers, new and former, and met their classmates. Kindergarten students brought their parents to school with them for the first day. While our littlest Spartans were taking their first bus ride and navigating the lunch line, their parents were meeting with their child’s teacher.
Maine Memorial continued the tradition of new students to the school ringing the school bell on their first day of classes.
Here’s wishing all of our Spartans a great school year!
