Special to the DailySerena Kozusko, left, Chapin Benway, center, and Grace Anderson are all smiles on the first day of school at Edwards Elementary. Their smiling faces might have had something to do with the school's ice cream social.

EAGLE COUNTY ” Eagle County schools would like to welcome students, parents, staff and community members to join in on our excitement for the 2008-09 school year.

The last couple of weeks have been filled with ice cream socials, barbecues and open houses galore, and students are eager and ready to dive into learning. Our staff has been busy preparing for their students by implementing the new reading program, Literacy by Design, and attending a memorable Teacher Training Conference in Beaver Creek where famous educational speakers such as Dr. Foster Cline, Dr. Robert Marzano and Dr. Bethanie Tucker spoke to more than 500 staff members.

Eagle County Schools expect the 2008-09 school year to be a great one.
