Back To School

Maple Elementary School in Machesney Park had its' first full day today.

They start three weeks earlier than the rest of the Harlem School District. Teachers feel starting early gives them a jump start on their education and even the kids say they don't really mind it.

Maple students get two weeks off in October and an extra week for spring break. This allows them to finish the school year the same time as other students in the district.
