TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Students around Northeast Kansas are back in the classroom Tuesday!

Kids at Pauline South Intermediate in Wakarusa kicked off the start of the year with the Pledge of Allegiance. The students the went to their classrooms to learn more about what they are doing for the rest of the semester.

The school's principal, who has held the job for 25 years, says every year brings new challenges, but he wouldn't change a thing.

"Absolutely, I love my job," Chris Holman said. "I think I have the best job in the world. Just getting to know the students and the families, building a team to help meet their needs for once they leave Pauline South, not only to go to the middle school or high school, but then once they're beyond the buildings, just preparing them to be productive members of the community."

Homan says he and his staff are always happy to see the students after summer break.
