Students in kindergarten through ninth grades returned to class Monday. Today, students in 10th to 12th return to school.
Quaker Valley Middle School students returned Monday for a new school year in new surroundings at a new school building. Middle School Principal Sean Aiken greeted students as they stepped off the bus and across the front walk to Anthony Wayne school. Students are attending classes at the school in Ambridge temporarily while the middle school in Sewickley is renovated. Construction is expected to be completed by next fall. Pupils at Osborne and Edgeworth elementary schools also returned Monday along with ninth-graders, who had the chance to get acclimated to their new building without the upperclassmen around. The 10th- to 12th-graders return to the high school today.

For at least the second time in my life, I am not dreading another school year or the loss of carefree summer days. Things are changing around me, yet everything in my life is staying the same. Because I'm not one for change, I like it. Now that my routine is consistent on a year-round basis, I can finally start to enjoy the changing of seasons-- or at least parts of it. One of my favorite summer …
