2014-15 academic year begins at Marcellus Central Schools

Marcellus Central Schools welcomed about 1,771 students back to campus Tuesday for the start of the 2014-15 school year.

Classes began for students in grades one through 12 at K.C. Heffernan Elementary School, C.S. Driver Middle School and Marcellus High School. Meanwhile, KCH’s 120 kindergartners – otherwise known as the Class of 2027 – were invited, along with their parents, to attend an orientation at KCH. Their school year begins Wednesday.

The kindergarten orientation included story time, teacher introductions, classroom visits and a 15-minute practice bus ride through the village.

When the buses pulled back into the circular drive at KCH, kindergartners received a lesson in how to exit and cross in front of the bus. For many of the youngsters, Tuesday’s dry run marked their first trip ever on a bus, KCH Principal Gary Bissaillon said.
