Those school bells will once again start ringing, beckoning children back to the classrooms. Times can be a little scary for youngsters who may not know the lay of the land in their new school building. School districts all over the area have taken some of the guesswork out of finding classes, however, by hosting Meet the Teacher nights at their campuses. These opportunities allow both students and parents to meet the teachers and figure out the best way to navigate the hallways of their new surroundings.
