First day of school at Einstein: excitement and construction equipment

Construction on the new Einstein Middle School began this Summer 2018 with an anticipated completion date of August 2020. The new 150,888 square foot school will have the capacity for 1,071 students and will house 6th - 7th - 8th grades instead of the current 7th-8th grade configuration.

The reality for the kids will be the teachers and the classrooms, not the construction going on outside. 

Staff and teachers were there to meet the buses as they pulled up. Here, a student is greeted and shown where he is supposed to go to start his day.

Students met their teachers at an all-school assembly in the gym. There was not quite enough room to seat all the students, so they spilled over onto the floor.

And the teachers! They are leading the kids in a silly song - everyone's arms are in the air and the ice is definitely broken.

The upperclassmen - 8th graders - had skits and routines to greet the "sevies". Middle school represents a lot of change for kids. Different teachers for different subjects. Moving from classroom to classroom during the day. Lockers. Going from being the oldest kids in the school to being the youngest. Having classmates a foot taller (or shorter) than they are.

Welcoming activities help ease the transition.
