It’s no secret that Beaufort County public school children have gone back to school.  We see pressed uniforms, kids getting up early, the terror of the first time on the bus, students scurrying around with heavy backpacks on, and everyone ready to tackle another year. At Beaufort Elementary School, Principal Melissa Holland started the new year off last week with a meet-n-greet with parents, students and teachers. Parents also got their car pass to gain access to the school driveway to pick up their children and others got their bus assignments. After solving a simple mathematics problem, the answer of which was the student’s new classroom number, parents and students were off to meet their new teachers and try out their new seating assignment.The evening was capped off with a hotdog dinner in the school cafeteria. Not a bad way to start a new year.
