Principal Antoine McGill walked around Sunset Avenue School with a notepad, making a list of what needs to be fixed before students bound back down the halls in just over a week.


The building was empty and quiet Friday, but it’s going to be filled with students and teachers real soon.


“I’m trying to make sure everything is in place for them and that everything is working, so we can make it a smooth transition for them when they come back from summer break,” McGill said.


The first day of school for Clinton City Schools and Sampson County Schools is Monday, Aug. 25.


Like other teachers and administrators, McGill said he is ready for a new school year to get under way.


“The excitement of the kids coming back into the building on the first day – that is probably the biggest joy to me, especially the fourth-graders,” he said. “This is a new school for them, so they’re bright-eyed and ready for a new challenge.”


McGill said the teachers are ready for the challenges that the new academic year brings. They return to classrooms next week.


“Everybody is at their best and excited about the new school year,” McGill stressed.


Before students return to the classrooms, the school districts are hosting a series of orientations and open house events at their respective buildings.


Susan Warren, public relations and student services coordinator for Sampson County Schools, said she’s looking forward to children, parents and new faces at the open house events.


“It’s a new beginning for teachers and students,” Warren said. “We have great expectations for our students and staff.”


A link to the 2014 open house schedule is posted on Sampson County Schools’ website at www.sampson.k12.nc.us. The majority of open house events are scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 21.


Orientations at Clinton City’s elementary schools and Sampson Middle School are scheduled for the same day.


Terrace Miller, assistant superintendent for student services for Clinton City Schools, said there is a lot of information regarding orientation that parents need to familiarize themselves with as school approaches.


“We’re hoping that all the staff and students come back with a renewed attitude, ready to learn,” Miller said. “We’re looking forward to a good year.”


School supply lists are available online at www.clinton.k12.nc.us. Links to the schools are accessible on the districts’ websites. Some stores in town may have lists available for students and parents as well. The needs for students are different for each grade level.
