    Plenty of smiles, hugs and a few tears were visible at both Roosevelt and Mary Beck elementary schools on the first day of school.

    Roosevelt Elementary School Principal Jeff Komins was on the move early Friday, Aug. 15, as he and his school started a new year. Komins greeted parents and students in front of the school before moving to Wolf Street to make sure students were getting to school safely. 

    JeNeva Adams was also greeting students and parents at Mary Beck Elementary School. It wasn’t only the first day of school for her students, but her first day on the job as the new principal. 

    It didn’t take long for students to find classrooms and for parents to say goodbye so their children could settle into the routine of the new school year.
