Day One APS: Students and Staff Hit the Ground Running Ready to Learn

By Scott Turley

Excited about the first day of school, Day One! I stopped by four schools to see how the students were getting into the groove.

My first stop was at Burgess-Peterson Academy, where I met fifth-grader Laila Burgess-Kattoula. She told me how excited she was to make her last year in elementary school the best she could.

On the way out, I spoke with Burgess-Peterson Academy Principal David White, who told me he was hoping all APS schools were enjoying a great first day.

I then stopped by Dunbar Elementary and checked in on a first grade class while they were in the middle of a lesson to wish them a wonderful first day of school.
