Students Eager to Learn, Discover on First Day of School

Bronxville students of all ages walked into school on Sept. 8 eager to see their friends, compare schedules and discover new opportunities during the school year. Halls and classrooms were buzzing with excitement as teachers and staff members welcomed students on the first day of school.

Kindergarten students met their teachers for the first time and made new friends in their classrooms. Older students collaborated with their younger peers as they gave them tours of the building in an effort to make the transition smoother. Sixth-grade students met with their eighth-grade ambassadors, while ninth-grade students worked with 44 seniors who are members of the Freshmen Transition Leaders team.

“It’s a close-knit community,” said Nick Sutherland, a senior and Freshmen Transition Leader. “We’re focusing on being able to take risks and emphasizing that the freshmen are in a place where that’s OK.” He said his goal for the school year is to help the new generation of students continue the academic and athletic excellence for which Bronxville is known.

Administrators said they want to develop a sense of community among the freshmen and make them feel welcomed on the first day of school. They said those efforts help students make a quick transition both in the classroom and extracurricular activities.

“Our goal each year is to get down to the business of teaching and learning as efficiently as possible,” Superintendent Dr. David Quattrone said.

“Our students, teachers and parents all cooperated to make the opening of school what it should be – a time to reconnect with friends and colleagues and to feel the motivation and positive energy that comes with a new beginning.”
