School and Smiles are back in session

I stopped by GCAA today to see how things were going on the first day of school for 2016-2017. There was a lot of enthusiasm, as you can see.

But then I noticed something a bit unusual.  Usually when a high school student graduates from a school, he/she no longer attends that school.

Not the case with JuJu Vieth (above photo, right side), who was at school on the opening bell, to say hello and goodbye to friends and favorite teachers, before leaving next week to attend Loyola University Chicago, where she will study nursing.
