First Day Festival


Wyoming High School cheerleaders greeted staff members at the door of Grand Rapids First Church

The entire staff of educators started the school year with a morning of celebration last Monday at Grand Rapids First Church, in Wyoming.

The fanfare included greetings from Wyoming High School cheerleaders, and a mini-concert from the marching band, which played the fight song, national anthem and a song selection from its fall showcase.

Administrators outlined the vision and mission statement for the year around the motto, “Better Together.”
