Portland Public Schools’ students in grades 1-12 returned to school on Aug. 31. New Portland Superintendent Xavier Botana, accompanied by Assistant Superintendent for School Management Jeanne Crocker, visited a number of schools to meet and greet students and staff on the first day.

One school they visited was Lyseth Elementary School, which held a play date in the playground for new kindergarten students and also a “First Bus Ride.” Pre-K and kindergarten students will start school on Tuesday, Sept. 6, but the practice bus ride was designed to allay young students’ first-day-of-kindergarten jitters.

Pictured are some Lyseth kindergartners boarding a school bus for their practice ride and Superintendent Botana greeting youngsters, their parents and school bus drivers.
