It’s back to school time

Schools across the Peninsula opened their doors this past week to welcome students to a fresh year of reading, writing, arithmetic…and friends. From first-time kindergarteners to seasoned middle and high schoolers, students slung their backpacks over their shoulders on their way to make new friends, greet old ones and add to their store of knowledge.
