First day of school for RPS students

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- It's that time of the year again.

After months of summer sports and relaxation, more than 16 thousand kids at Rochester Public Schools are hitting the books.

Tuesday morning John-Adams Middle School students stepped off their buses with their brand new backpacks stuffed with school supplies to be greeted by their new teachers for the year.

As school got out we caught up with some elementary school students at Sunset Terrace to find out what they did on the big day.

"So in class we do games to get to know all of the classmates, and we got candy if we knew all of the people's names," said fifth grader Aubrey Goergen. "We have a really fun teacher, and he's kind of weird."

Even though summer is over, kids say that they're looking forward to the rest of the year.
