North Lamar Welcomes Students Back to School!
Yellow buses and happy faces were the scene at North Lamar Independent School District Monday morning as students stepped off buses or tumbled out of cars into the 2014-2015 school year. While some returned to familiar campuses with a new set of teachers, others walked in to new buildings with a new group of faces.
Many of the teachers received hugs from returning students and offered encouraging words to the new school year. Last minute schedule changes, locating classes, meeting new teachers, and listening to instructor expectations are what most heard at every campus.
“I’m excited about this year at North Lamar,” said new Superintendent John McCullough. “We’ve got a great group of teachers and staff to lead our students this year. Together, we will be focusing on our students’ strengths and finding ways to bring out the positives in all situations. Coordinating technology into our students’ curriculum will be one of our major goals. I look forward to getting to know our students, parents, and community better in the coming days.”
Approximately 2,800 students attended classes the first day at North Lamar. Student activities such as football, volleyball, cross country and band have been well underway since August 4 with games beginning this week.
