JES Students Hit the Halls for a New School Year

Yet another summer break has come to a close for most students in the Jack, Wise and Young counties. With backpacks loaded and 2-a-days already started, students have turned their attention from vacations and summer jobs to the day to day activities they will have the next 9 months. As Facebook posts began showing up early in the morning revealing the latest school fashions and freshly scrubbed faces, it was evident that (mostly) everyone was ready to face the day. Students and teachers had a successful first day at Jacksboro Elementary. You could feel the excitement from all those walking the halls, new and returning. Teachers have been working diligently on their classrooms for a couple of weeks in preparation for the year. New faces can be seen, both teacher and students, and some familiar faces will be notably missing as several have joined the ranks of the retired! From pre-K to 12th grade, the feeling of “the first day of school” was a blend of excitement, nervousness and anticipation as the students look forward (mostly) to the upcoming year.
