EDITOR’S NOTE: The Brown County Democrat visits a school on the first day each year to capture the action. This year it was Sprunica’s turn.
HAMBLEN TWP. — There was no shortage of high fives, fist bumps, hugs and pictures at the first day back to school at Sprunica Elementary on Aug. 10.
Students walked arm in arm from their buses into the school building, ready to face the day — and the school year — and whatever it may bring.
Even though it was the first day back, school drop-off was a well-oiled machine.
Buses unloaded a mass wave of kids all ages, who made their way to the right spot. Cars filed into the small parking lot and back out in a short period of time.
Principal Shane Killinger offered a wave to drivers and high fives to the young and eager passengers who exited their cars and made their way into the school.
Soon desks and classrooms were filled with activity once again as school year 2022-2023 officially began.
