The playground was jam packed on September 14 as Apollo families and staff gathered for a Back-to-School picnic on a beautiful evening. While students shot baskets, spun hulu hoops, clambered over the play equipment, and acquired some awesome face painted works of art, parents chatted, connected with teachers, and checked out the spirit wear.
All enjoyed the chance to linger in the warm autumn air, listen to music, nosh on pizza and other goodies, and just spend time together as a school community.
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!
