It was back to school for Ontario students on Friday, Aug. 19 — including the city’s five elementary schools, which held open houses on Thursday. Kids and families chatted with teachers one-on-one, explored classrooms, and tested out the desks where they’ll be sitting for the next school year.
At Cairo Elementary School, located just off Highway 20-26, students walked down a covered breezeway bordering a playground and field to get to their future classrooms. Some teachers handed out welcome snacks or books while students loaded up their desks with school essentials. Siblings of all ages tagged along too.
