After a quiet two months, the halls of Linford L. Anderson Elementary School in Dixon were once again filled with new and familiar faces when classes resumed Thursday for the 2019-20 school year.
The day began with students and their parents gathering on the blacktop for a schoolwide welcome, morning announcements and recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance by Principal Rayito Farris. The students then formed single file lines and made their way to their classrooms.
Their backpack designs reflected their interests, ranging from movie franchises like “Frozen” and “Toy Story,” comic book characters like Spider-Man, video games like “Fortnite,” “Minecraft” and “Super Mario Bros”; and timeless hobbies like dinosaurs and cars.
