RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN-TV) School is just around the corner for Rapid City Area School students, and Thursday kids could visit their classrooms during their annual Meet the Teacher event.
All schools in the district invited their students in for an open house -- and a meet-and-greet so that both parents and students can get to know their future teachers.
Kids could also get the lay of the land a week before they head to class. At Valley View, the event was 1950's themed.
Along with a new school year, kids at Valley View Elementary are also welcoming a new teacher Dr. Hafer and she told us what she is most looking forward to this year.
Dr. Lisa Hafer, principal at Valley View Elementary says, "Just the kids getting their learn on and learning new things, and digging in, and just getting ready for this school year, and getting to me, and me getting to know them, and the community."
Hafer spent the last three years serving as principal of Pinedale Elementary.
