Ironwood - While the sight and sound of teachers and students in the hallways of Ironwood's Luther L. Wright K-12 School will soon become routine, Monday was likely the first day this summer the building was bustling with activity as the district held its Back to School Fair.

The event allowed younger students to find out who their teachers would be, while older students could pick up their schedules. There was also information from various organizations, such as the district's parent-teacher organization. The district also took the opportunity to have student pictures taken at the fair, in an effort to ensure the kids looked their best for the photos.

"It is wonderful. (There is a) great turnout," Superintendent Travis Powell said. "Lots of boys and girls are here getting to meet their teacher, or getting their class schedules, getting their pictures - all of the things we set up are going perfectly."

He said the fair was a good way for students to ease back into the routine of going to school.

"If they were anxious at all about where their class was going to be, or where their locker is or any of that stuff; they can get all those jitters sorted out now so when the first day of school on Sept. 4 happens everybody knows where they're going," Powell said.

Along with events in the school's second floor gym, many of the district's teachers were in their rooms to meet with students or parents who wanted to drop in over the course of the event.

Classes start in Ironwood Sept. 4.
