Community Leaders Welcome Students the First Day of School
George O. Barr Elementary Started the School Year by Celebrating!
The first day of school was Friday, August 10th. Community leaders, retired teachers, and the Channel 8 morning team arrived at George O. Barr Elementary at 7:30 am to welcome the George O. Barr Elementary students back to school. Everyone gave students high fives, cheered, and held up signs so students knew that we were excited to have them back for the new year. Participants included Mayor Carter, Jim Nelson, Jim Grafton, Chief of Police Van Klavern, Fire Chief Winters, the River Bandits, and Silvis police and fire. We even had retired teachers that came back to join in the fun. Thank you to everyone for helping us to kick off the school year.
