With school starting after Labor Day, students have a few extra weeks of summer vacation. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get a head start, meeting their teachers and seeing their classrooms before the school year officially begins. These are some of the schools offering such events.
Administrators and teachers from Sunset Elementary will ride a community bus around the area on the afternoon of Monday, August 26, to welcome kids back to school. Students can find the welcoming bus at local businesses and community pools, and look for surprise giveaways. Participating locations are still being finalized. For more information, call 410-222-6478.
Kids and their parents can visit to the new and improved High Point Elementary on Wednesday, August 28, for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:00pm and a meet and greet from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. The school can be reached at 410-222-6454.
