Many students were jumping up and down waiting for the first day of school, and for Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School, it was finally here. Students from preschool through 8th grade filed into the gym on Thursday, August 16 to start off the day. The bell finally rang at 7:50 and the students were released to go to their classrooms.

Students were welcomed by the teachers and sat at their desks waiting for the morning announcements to start. Once they started, the whole school said the Pledge of Allegiance and the NCEMS pledge. After that, the elementary teachers took charge of the class and continued the day, while all middle school teachers and students headed back to the gym for the traditional first-day assembly.

“I liked getting to play with the mystery play-doh,” said Landry Hiltgen.

During this assembly, the 6th through 8th grade students were engaged in activities that allowed them to learn the rules and have fun doing it. For example, there was a  friendly trivia game where the students were divided out into their classes and played against the whole middle school. The questions regarded rules in which the students may have forgotten or needed to be reminded of. There was also a cup stacking relay with four teams of three students. Each student had to place twenty-one cups on top of each other and put them back down into a single stack. Then they had to run back and tag the next person for them to start. The first group to complete this relay received a choice of a gift certificate or a Thunder shirt.

“The best part of the first day of school was not having any homework,” said Emma Stallbaumer.

Although not all students wanted to be back in school, you could definitely say that this first day of school was a fun and exciting first day for many.
