Proviso Students Welcomed Back on First Day of 2016-2017 School Year
August 25, 2016 10:06 AM
It was a smooth start to the 2016-2017 school year as students at Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy adjusted to their new schedules and new teachers, and for freshmen and new students, their new buildings.
Students experienced everything that the first day of school provides in finding their way to new classes and meeting new classmates and their teachers through activities that helped them learn what is expected of them in their classes.
"We had a fantastic day today," said Dr. Jesse J. Rodríguez, superintendent of District 209. "All teachers started teaching and students were already engaged in academic activities. This great first day set a very positive tone for our students entering the new school year."
Students, teachers, and staff members worked together to produce a smooth opening to the new school year. Activities ranged from learning about class expectations and teachers and students introducing themselves to each other to jumping right into their lessons for the new year.
Welcome back, students and teachers! Here’s to a great school year!
