Teachers and staff reconnect at an opening day program this morning at Mellon Middle School.
The countdown is on for the first day of school on Sept. 2, but before the students return, teachers are back to prepare for the start of the school year. The week of in-service and classroom prep kicked off with a breakfast for all staff this morning outside of Mellon Auditorium and a welcome back program that followed. The morning began with Dr. Steinhauer, Dr. Davis, and Dr. Irvin outlining what to expect in the coming year, new staff members were introduced and welcomed into the District, employees with 25 years of service were recognized, while Pete Bouvy and 1955 alum Preston V. McMurry Jr. closed out the program with special remarks for staff. Everyone was sent off on a "happy" note with the premiere of a video to welcome back our students and staff. Enjoy!
