Students and parents were welcomed to Pequenakonck Elementary school on Sept. 5 by none other than the school mascot, Cubby himself. Principal Mary Johnson and Assistant Principal Dr. Stephanie Bell were up front and center greeting everyone at the door as well. 

Students and parents met this year’s teachers and familiarized themselves with their new classrooms 
from 3 to 5 p.m.

“We do this every year,” Johnson said. “It’s a really fun way to welcome everyone back.”
