After a summer of quiet hallways and classrooms, the activity level at area schools picked up dramatically this week as eager teachers and school staff members returned to make preparations for a Sept. 4 return to the classroom. At Island View Elementary School I ran into Principal Bernard Selting, already flashing the familiar welcome smile his students will encounter in coming weeks. Third grade teacher Karen Perkins made preparations in her classroom, including a wall display on the subject of Helen Keller and sign language. She answered a phone call regarding dinner arrangements with husband Mark Perkins, a sixth grade teacher at Fidalgo Elementary School. Mark was also busy at school, putting things into order so he and his students can hit the ground running next week.
