Q&A: Are you excited for back-to-school?

The Moffat County School District resumes classes Monday, and teachers were busy this week preparing their classrooms and attending meetings.

Students were busy gathering last-minute school supplies and enjoying the sunshine before heading back to school.

The Craig Daily Press asked a handful of these teachers and students: Are you excited for back-to-school?

Here’s what they had to say.

“Kinda. I don’t like classes … Why I am (excited) is to hang out with my friends.”

— Jeremy Bell, eighth-grader at Craig Middle School

“Yes because you get to meet new friends, and there’s going to be new kids. And we get new teachers this year, so I get to meet them.”

— Danaka Bradshaw, fifth-grader at Sandrock Elementary School

"Yes. My sister is going to be riding the bus with me — she’s going to be in kindergarten. I get to see old friends and get to meet new friends.”

— Savannah Duran, fifth-grader at Sandrock Elementary School

“Yes I am. … I’m just excited to be back to school because I’m excited to be back with the kids and my colleagues, and I just enjoy myself here.”

— Deb Roberts, English, history and reading teacher at Moffat County High School

“Yes, because I really like school because I get to chase boys and I get to play with my friend Gabby.”

— Mackenzie Schneider-Ott, second-grader at Sandrock Elementary School

“Yes and no. I’m excited because it’s my last year, but I’m not excited because now I have to grow up.”

— Kelley Syvertson, senior at Moffat County High School
