Students returned to North Branch last week on September 8th. We were lucky to have lovely cooler weather for the start of school. Everyone is enjoying being outside in the mornings and catching up with friends after a long summer break.
A newish (in the last several years) North Branch tradition is running or walking a lap around the field in the morning before class starts. Everyone at North Branch enjoys 15-30 minutes of play or outside time before school starts at 9. Students (and occasionally teachers!) run a lap before the 9:00 bell rings for class. They arrive in their rooms more focused and ready to learn.
