Montgomery County Public School students return to class Monday, and the final round of open house events is taking place this afternoon at schools across the county.
Montgomery Learning Academy has its open house from 2 to 4 p.m. today. Then Candor, Green Ridge, Star and Troy Elementary from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., and Mount Gilead and Page St. Elementary from 4 to 6 p.m.
All students and families are encouraged to attend to meet faculty and staff and to find out more about the coming school year. There will also be information about the shift to community and corner bus stops being introduced.
Those unable to attend open house can get information from local schools or from the county office at 910-576-6511.
Fall athletic seasons are also getting underway. Tomorrow night, West Montgomery football begins with a home game versus Marvin Ridge of Union County. The game will mark the start of our on-air coverage of the West Montgomery season, with John Inman at the microphone starting at 7 o’clock Friday night.
As we reported earlier this week, the West athletic department is planning a special remembrance of Coach James Garmon just before kick-off.
East Montgomery will start its season Friday with an away game versus Union Pines.
