Just got back taking my son back to school this morning. Got any exciting, first-day-back stories or pictures to share?

Hi Tim - missed your request for solar car pics while I was out of town. I will put some together for you. Also, please reach out to Mrs. Melanie Pearch, the new principal at Woodward School (678-874-7802) for a profile interview. Brookhaven just got one of the best in the system in her and we should support her efforts for the kids - we've had something ridiculous like six principals in eight years. Melanie is here for the long-term and Broohkaven is going to benefit.

Glad to hear Woodward has a new principal and wish them much success in the new school year. We at Ashford Park are very excited about the beginning on Dr. LaShawn McMillan's tenure as principal. Looks like Brookhaven's elementary schools have bright futures which began today.
