First Day Back For Elwood Students
On Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017 the Elwood Union Free School District started the 2017-18 school year. Students were all smiles getting off the buses, greeting new teachers and both old and new friends.
At James H. Boyd Intermediate School, students unpacked their school supplies into their desks and got acclimated with their classmates through “getting to know you” questionnaires. Teachers introduced themselves and set the tone for the year. Principal Denise Toscano spent the morning visiting classrooms and welcoming students back to school.
Kindergartners at Harley Avenue rode the bus for the first time, disembarking to waving, excited parents, and lined up, ready for their first year. Harley Avenue Principal Elissa Millan greeted students at the front of the building, and welcomed them to school for the first time.
“Kindergarten is a big step for children,” Millan said, “and every year seeing the new students is just as exciting as the year before.”
Middle and high school students also had an exciting day, filled with exercises geared at familiarizing themselves with one another, as well as their academic courses. The Elwood Union Free School District wishes all students and staff a successful year ahead.
