Some Students Head Back to School
School is back in session for some North Central Florida students. Several Gainesville private schools including Queen of Peace Catholic Academy and St. Patrick's Interparish School welcomed kids back for the first day of classes.
After a few months for summer break, classes kicked off Thursday. Both administrators and students said they've been ready.
"After like a month I felt like I wasn't having fun anymore cause I wanted to go back to school," said Queen of Peace first-grader Amanda Connors.
"It's always great, it's exciting. It really makes all of us fill with great joy and anticipation," said Queen of Peace principal Sister Nancy Elder.
At St. Patrick's School in Northeast Gainesville Thursday marked the start of classes for the 50th anniversary.
