Natalie Fecteau, left, and her sister, Savannah Fecteau, started the new school year Monday in colorful outfits and with backpacks filled with pencils and paper. Natalie is a third-grader at King Elementary School, and Savannah is a first-grader at Mitchell Elementary School. They were escorted to school by their parents and grandparents.

Second-grade student Van Wilbur is coached by Mitchell Elementary School Principal Ben Day before he lead the assembly to start the new school year Monday morning. Van told his classmates to be positive. Day encouraged the students to sing the school’s song extremely loud because there is a “grumpy guy” who lives in the apartments just north of the school and sometimes complains that the morning announcements are too loud. The children happily complied.
