Bronxville School students were filled with energy and excitement as they entered their classrooms on the first day of school on Sept. 6. Equipped with new books and supplies, they were ready to seek out new academic opportunities, see their friends, compare schedules and meet new teachers, who greeted them with smiles.
“It was great seeing all the excitement and smiling faces as our students entered the building,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Roy Montesano said. “Our teachers and staff members were eager to greet the students and welcome them back from the summer break.”
Kindergartners had an exciting day of firsts as they introduced themselves to their new teachers and developed friendships with their classmates. Throughout the building, students organized their school supplies and took part in a variety of activities, including reading, writing and learning the rules of their new classrooms.
Meanwhile, middle school students located their new classrooms and greeted their teachers, who guided them through their expectations for the year. Prior to attending their first class, ninth-grade students met with members of the Freshmen Transition Leaders team, who gave them tours of the building, helped them find their classrooms and answered questions so they could make a smooth transition to high school.
Dr. Montesano said the academic year was already off to a great start and he looks forward to meeting students and parents throughout the year.
“We have a lot of exciting plans to further enhance and expand the Bronxville Promise,” he said.
