On the first day of the new school year, one of the traditions is ringing the bell at the west end of C.R. Hanna Elementary School, Orion. On Monday, Aug. 16, the honor of ringing the bell belong to two teachers who are retiring in May. Robin Tuttle pulls the rope while Sharon Peterson, right, waits her turn. “We declare to Orion that school is back in session,” Principal R.C. Lowe said.
“Welcome back Chargers” was a popular photo op east of C.R. Hanna Elementary School, Orion, on the first day of class, Monday morning, Aug. 16.
