Tuesday marked the first day of school for Shippensburg area students. Many younger students made their way to the classroom, while older students did their schoolwork via an online platform. Quite a few families have opted to use the virtual format for their younger children, as well, with so many unknowns surrounding the pandemic. Pictured are Annalise Myers, 6, who started her first day of 1st grade at Nancy Grayson Elementary from home. Her sister, Abby, 10, also began her first day of 5th grade at Grace B. Luhrs Elementary from home. Their mom, Roxanne, said they survived the first day of virtual learning, but had to upgrade their internet to handle both of the girls’ Chromebooks. Anna said she liked the Zoom meetings the most. Her favorite subject is math, especially subtraction. She’s hoping for restrictions to be lifted soon because she is looking forward to recess! Later on in the school year when math gets harder, that will be her biggest challenge. Abby said she liked the game they played over Zoom called ‘This or That.’ Her favorite subject is science. She’s looking forward to playing the clarinet and school going back to ‘normal.’ She said the biggest challenge this year will be doing virtual learning.
