  • Off to a Great Start!

    Posted by Janet Bishop at 8/18/2017


    On a beautiful Wednesday, D63 welcomed 3,600 K-8 students back to its seven schools! There were lots of smiles, greetings, photos, and great excitement as friends reunited. The rare first-day tears shed by a few of our kindergarteners quickly dried as they met teachers and began to explore the school.

    This year Opening Day went exceptionally smoothly; students quickly and easily found their classrooms, settled in, and jumped right into learning and fun. Parents chatted and reconnected on the playground before heading home.

    Thursday was wet, but that didn't dampen the spirits of our First Step preschoolers who joined us at Apollo, Melzer, and Washington. As we head into our first full week, D63 has a full house!
