Students reconnect at 'Nashua Goes Back to School'
"It's going to be a great year," said Board of Education member Kim Muise who was in the middle of a crowd that seemed more like they were attending a rock concert than a school event where they could pick up their bus schedules.
"I've been out playing all summer, but I haven't seen my friends from school and I'm excited to go back," said Korben Decoursey, a sixth grader starting at Pennichuck Middle School.
As for heading back to school, Nathan said he's also looking forward to seeing friends.
Many kids said seeing friends, playing sports and getting back to other school activities were the main reasons they were looking forward to the opening day of school on Tuesday. And while nobody mentioned missing math or social studies, Nashua students will be ready for class.
Melynda Hilliard of Skillsoft, an online business education service, was giving out story books, book bags and zipper cases filled with pencils with some help from volunteers from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Nashua.
Main Dunstable Elementary School Principal Kelly Paradis and new Assistant Principal Kay Aathun looked as excited as their students.
Amherst Elementary School Principal Jennifer Scarpati, Assistant Principal Stacy Bachelor and Home and School Coordinator Delfina Berry were also happy to see so many kids looking forward to starting the new year.
