Sixth-grade teacher Kim Hodges West helps student Marshall Redd learn how to use a combination lock during an orientation session at North Augusta Middle School on Friday.

Aiken County Public Schools Superintendent Eliza­beth Everitt said she has great expectations for this school year and the students.

“My expectation is that our students are going to do the best they can throughout the year,” she said.

More than 115 teachers this year are first-time educators or new to the district. Of those, about 25 will teach in the North Augusta
area.

Everitt and the district’s senior management will be out in the schools observing the first day and welcoming students in addition to new faculty and staff.

“The first day is always exciting,” Everitt said. “We’ll try to go to schools in all corners of our county.”
