It's back to school in Elizabeth

The Elizabeth School District welcomed new faculty and staff at an orientation at Elizabeth High School on Aug. 10.

More than 30 of the district's 45 new teachers and administrators attended the orientation day. The morning session included introductions, overviews of mentoring programs and evaluations, along with answers to general questions that teachers may have had ahead of the school year.

Following lunch, sponsored by the Elizabeth Federation of Teachers, the teachers returned to their individual schools for breakout sessions to become familiar with the individual nuances of each school.

According to Superintendent Douglas Bissonette, the district's newest crop of teachers hail from as far away as Boston. Nearly half are beginning new careers as teachers right out of college, and the remainder are either bringing their expertise from other school districts or launching second careers as educators.

The prelude to the 2015-16 school year continued throughout the week with freshmen and new student orientation, boys golf try-outs, and booster meetings at EHS.

The school year began at Elizabeth High School and Legacy Academy on Aug. 17, but some district schools, like Frontier High School, began classes a week earlier.
