One student said, "I went to Fantasy Island. I went to Seabreeze, I went to Darien Lake."
Another student replied, "I went to myrtle beach."

Shamonnie Lee, 5th Grader, said,"folders, notebooks, pencils, calculator, flash drives, headphones, art sketch books."
Evan Michaels, 2nd Grader, said, "we got a bunch of stuff and now my backpacks really heavy."
Roger DeBell, Thornell Road Elementary Principal, said, "It’s always exciting because it’s a fresh start, and as you heard on the announcements this morning, I always challenge the students to look at this as a fresh beginning a chance to really do a great job this year and do their best every day."
And even though this was the first day some fifth graders are already looking forward to what happens on the last.
Ally Rohrer, 5th Grader, said, "Seabreeze at the end of the year."
