Fresh start for students in Merrimack
"Everybody seems happy to be here. They were ready to go bright and early this morning," said Barbara DeNutte, a teacher at Merrimack Middle School.
"A lot of these skills will focus on improving student organization," she said.
"We are ready to roll," said Powers.
At Reeds Ferry School, the first day went even better than expected for Principal Kimberly Yarlott.
Members of the Merrimack police and fire departments were on hand to assist Tuesday morning, offering additional security and extra smiles, said Yarlott.
"Our enrollment is up a little bit, and we will be on the higher end once the preschoolers arrive," said Yarlott, who visited each of the classrooms on Tuesday to greet the students personally.
At Mastricola Elementary School, students were greeted with brand new flooring as asbestos abatement work was completed throughout the summer.
There are about 465 students at Mastricola Elementary School this school year, according to Carter, who said the teachers are eager to begin implementing a new writing program in the coming months.
