#SJbacktoschool shows what it takes to start the year

This past week, educators in the Salem-Keizer School District have been busy getting ready for a new school year.

At Auburn Elementary School, new teachers toured the school, learned the ins and outs and set up their classrooms.

At McNary High School, new teachers went through a teacher draft, while at Claggett Creek Middle School, teachers trained on how to build relationships with students.

At Lee Elementary School, custodian and maintenance workers perfected the building and made space for new materials. And at Chapman Hill Elementary School, teachers finalized lesson plans.

This was just a snapshot of what all these people do to prepare for the year.
