Marion

As some school districts have already returned back into school early last week, Marion County welcomed their students back Wednesday morning for the first day of class.

Students and faculty around the county were excited to kick off what is projected to be a productive year for schools all across the area.

“Anytime you’re in middle school when you have 1st through 8th, I thought we decided on the first day so this is one of our largest classes since I’ve been here in five years, and it’s always exciting to come back and see the face is after the summer.” said East Fairmont Middle School principal, Jay Michael.

Principal Michael spoke about how East Fairmont students are continuing to grow in the stem program and  will host events for the school later this year.
