Area students head back to school

Soaring Heights fourth-grader Lincoln Peterson was more than ready for a new year at his new school.

"I was excited to see some familiar faces, and I already made some new friends," he said. "I'm excited to have a great fourth-grade time."
Classmate Gwyneth Veenendaal was right there with him, listing off new technology, a new teacher and a new building as the things she's excited about.
"I love new schools because they're fresh," she said. "It's a new start."
