Students returned to the hallways of schools in Pella earlier this week, as the 2010-2011 school year is now underway. Pella Christian High School Principal Darryl De Ruiter says they spent the first day as orientation for new freshman and transfer students, something he says has been very successful since it was implemented around five years ago.

Pella Schools Superintendent Mark Wittmer adds that everything went very well on the first day for Pella Community Schools, with the exception of a few transportation hang-ups, which are a common occurrence for new students each fall.
