Trianna Perry had her eye on changes on the first day of school at Englewood High.
“I'm excited to see how the school will work with all the different staff changes,” said Perry, a 14-year-old sophomore. A noticeable portion of the staff is new this year, she said, and she's excited to see how that plays out. New clubs are on her mind, too.
On Aug. 13, Julian Stell had a feeling on his mind that's sure to catch many of his fellow freshmen going into the year.
Asked what excites him about being a freshman, Stell, 14, said, “Everything that comes along with it. And I'm excited to feel more grown up, I suppose.”
For Shannan Bowerman, a seventh- and eighth-grade language arts teacher, new organizational structure at Englewood Middle School was already yielding results.
“The new year, starting off that way — it's better already,” said Bowerman, citing updates to behavioral, disciplinary and management structures in the wake of new members of administration who joined earlier in 2018.
For Bowerman, having that stability at the beginning of the school year lets her focus on what she's there for: the students.
“I always look forward to the kids coming,” Bowerman said.
