ATLANTA – Going back to school can be hard for some children, but you wouldn’t be able to tell that from looking at one Atlanta city school.
An adorable video sent to WSB-TV shows children walking into their first day of school at Hope-Hill Elementary — on a red carpet!
Principal Maureen Wheeler tells WSB-TV’s Kimberly Richardson she’s been the principal for five years at the school and has done this for four years now.
“It sets the tone for the entire year,” Wheeler said excitedly.
Wheeler said it’s a team effort to make sure the children are starting school with the right attitude.
The school is partnered with Blueprint and Tapestry churches in the city. They come and boost the children’s spirits, along with the teachers on both sides of the red carpet, giving high fives.
“We want them to feel special,” Wheeler said. “Because they are special here.”
