ROSELLE, NJ - Students in Roselle got a huge surprise on Thursday as they started their first day of school. Many school entrances had balloons along with teachers and staff welcoming them to the start of the school year.

The Abraham Clark High School students had an even bigger surprise as they reached the front steps of their school, as they found not just the school entrance decorated, but a whole lot more.

Principal Rashon Mickens dressed in the traditional red cap and gown, was waiting with Roselle Mayor Christine Dansereau, Council and Board of Education Members, and Community Leaders, to welcome back the students.

The ROTC color guard lined the steps, while the schools band and color guard performed. Mickens pulled out all of the stops to show that Roselle schools and the community cares about their students. 

As one mother pulled up and dropped her son off for his first day of high school, she said to Mickens, “Here he is, you take good care of him, he’s my precious cargo.” Mickens went to the car and reassured the mom that her son was in good hands.
