Today is the first day of school for the approximately 7,000 students in

Tomorrow, the slightly more than 9,000 children in begin the new school year.

Their outfits may be new and clean (not sure for the high schoolers!), the hair is perfect and their smiles are big — a perfect photo opp for many parents.
