Schools welcome back students

The first day of school for the Berkshire Local Schools officially kicked off Aug. 21 as students were welcomed back with smiles and high-fives from teachers and staff. During morning arrival at Berkshire Junior-Senior High School, students walking through the main entrance were personally greeted by Principal Michael King and Superintendent John Stoddard. At Burton Elementary School, parents walked with their student to the front of the building where they were greeted by teachers and Principal Mandy Randles. Students and teachers at Ledgemont Elementary School lined up outside the building to recite the school pride song before entering with a special “clap-in” ceremony for each grade level, starting with sixth grade.
