Lake County schools start new year
Students along the North Shore descended on Two Harbors and Silver Bay schools Tuesday, Sept. 4, for the start of another year.
Many tears were shed — mostly from parents — at Minnehaha Elementary School in Two Harbors and William Kelley Elementary School in Silver Bay as kindergartners arrived for their first day of class.
Kindergartners colored name tags for their cubbies and teachers in other grades walked their new students through class procedures and lunch menus as they began the process of adapting to new environments.
At Kelley, Silver Bay Police Chief Doug Frericks made his traditional trip over to the school to hand out some high-fives to students as they walked into the building for the first time since June.
While kindergartners began the adjustment to being in school all day, older students slipped back into familiar routines and talked with friends about their summer adventures.
