First day of school a success at Roosevelt

Posted: Updated:

Scottsbluff Public Schools are back–in session and an elementary school principal says the first day couldn't have gone any better.

Doctor Doris Ellison has been an educator for more than 20–years and says today, her first day as principal at Roosevelt Elementary School, has been her best ‘first day of school' ever.  

She says the students are excited, the teachers are ready, and the parents have been very helpful with getting their kids settled.  Ellison says there's also been lots of big siblings showing their little brothers and sisters where to go.

"Every teacher is smiling.  I saw teachers seeing their kids from last year and they're giving big ol' hugs," says Ellison.  "The new kids coming-in tentatively and within five minutes all that's gone and it was down to school business.  And we had no tears here today.  So that has been wonderful."

Doctor Ellison says she is excited too see what her first year has in–store as principal at Roosevelt Elementary School.
