The first day of school in the new Garfield Elementary finally arrived on Thursday as local students returned after Winter Break.
Excitement was high before the first morning bell sounded. Students were happy to see their peers and teachers following the holidays, but were more thrilled about their new surroundings.
Traffic seemed to flow smoothly as buses and parents left students at the front entrance.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10th, and the public is invited to the Community Open House from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13th.
