The summer will officially come to an end for several thousand school children in Chelsea early next week when they report back to school for the fall semester.
Superintendent Mary Bourque said school will start on Tuesday, Aug. 26 this year and students should be ready to report to their various schools bright and early.
“I want to welcome all students back for a year of purposeful learning on Tuesday, August 26,” said Bourque. “Our faculty and staff are working hard to prepare our buildings and our lessons to support a year of student success. We are excited to begin the 2014-2015 school year with everyone.”
This week, new teachers have already reported for training, and administrators will be on a retreat today, Aug. 21.
Perhaps one of the biggest changes greeting Chelsea High School (CHS) students is new Principal Priti Johari – who officially took over the reins this past summer from former Principal Joe Mullaney. Johari said in an interview over the summer that she is ready to welcome students back and build new relationships with parents and the community.
The annual Teacher’s Breakfast with Superintendent Bourque will take place on Monday, Aug. 25.
