Encouraging signs and cheers awaited students at Bon Air Elementary School, Pettit Park Elementary School, and Bon Air Middle School as the kindergartners through eighth-graders entered their buildings for the first day of school.
Kokomo Schools officials, several Bon Air alumni, and volunteers from Second Missionary Baptist Church waited outside the three school buildings to welcome students to the 2020-2021 school year. These adults held signs that read “Welcome Back #umatter2me,” “U R Great,” ”Be the Change,” and “Bon Air Rocks.” The volunteers offered encouraging words to the students.
“The first day of school is always special, but it makes an even bigger impact when we have the support of our community," said Pettit Park Principal Dr. Lyndsi Smith.
