As I’m sure you noticed, the buses are running in LoCo this morning, as the kids (finally) head back to school. I’m admitting to a little melancholy today, as I send my youngest of four off to kindergarten, my middle child to first grade, and my twins to their first year of middle school. It will be a different year for me this year! I’m holding up a coffee mug to ::cheers:: in the new school year…
The picture above is of Kenneth W. Culbert Elementary, which opens its doors for the first day today, as a brand spanking new school in Hamilton, Virginia. I’d also like to send a shoutout and big congratulations to a friend of mine, Janice Koslowski, who takes over as principal at Potomac Falls High School in Sterling for this school year. She is moving there after four successful years at the helm of Eagle Ridge Middle School in Ashburn. She used to be the vice principal at Potomac Falls, so this isn’t new territory for her. I’m sure that she is going to have a fantastic year, and I know that she will be welcomed there with open arms.
