Marking the end of summer vacation, the first day of classes Monday brought returning students and new students to one of Fort Campbell's nine schools.
At Barsanti Elementary School the staff arrived early, thrilled to begin another year with their students. Outside, with their school supplies and smiles, students gathered at the doors greeting each other with big hugs and joyful waves as their friends and classmates arrived.
Principal Jennifer Halley said that the first day of school means the beginning of a challenging new year with new students and new opportunities to learn and feed students' hunger for knowledge.
"We're trying to enhance the learning of the students and the love of learning for the students," Halley said. "It's exciting each year.
