“This morning at Edison, we’re here to help the students get excited about being back in school and welcoming for the first day,” said Lori Krause, Senior Director of Community Impact, United Way of Erie County.

The loud cheers and clapping gives the students an extra boost on their first day.

“We really missed them over the summer, and certainly happy to have them back in the schools and kick off a really great year and welcome our new students, help them feel like they are apart of the Edison community and our community school community as well,” said Krause.

Iroquois Elementary School will be hosting a red carpet event for its students on Tuesday.
