Bravo to the 6,000-plus Manatee school district teachers, secretaries, cooks, custodians, drivers, registrars, maintenance workers, and administrators on getting everything ready for a bright new school year.
When the first school bell rings Monday, our 48,000 students will be on a new educational adventure that will enrich them for their entire lives. From the tears of the little ones leaving their mothers for the first time, to the tears of joy at high school graduation next June, this school year will provide the tools for success everyone will need in an ever changing world.
The very best of luck to all our students with our encouragement to make the very best of every single day.
Never miss a local story.
