She told The Roadrunner, "I visited every school today and students were excited to be back in school. The high school had their traditional opening with a pep rally in the gym and they were treated to Mr. McCowan singing a song about heroes.

"At Pauma, students in Mrs. Songer's class were learning class routines and having a wonderful time with a positive, energetic teacher.

"At Lilac School I saw Mrs. Bassett's kindergarten class lining up, at VCE, Mrs. Yancey was taking pictures of her students in graduation robes to support the schools going to college culture, at Oak Glen all students were in class and ready to learn and at the Primary School, Ms. Callahan's kindergarten students were sitting in a circle on the carpet listening to the teacher tell them they would learn how to read. We are off to a great start!"

Enrollment for today is 4,040, which is 103 less than projected but 22 above last year's first day. Historically, enrollment increases for the first couple of weeks of school.
