Music teacher Paul Johnson welcomed new and old students to the new year with My Country 'Tis of Thee and God Bless America sing-alongs.

My sister Kathryn Burns was one of the first kindergarten students to go to Roaring Brook School 50 years ago. My two children attended the school as well. My grandson, John, is attending his second day of school at Roaring Brook today. I graduated from Avon High School. I have been an Avon resident for 37 years. Avon is a great place to live and raise children. Cindy Baker
