Wide-eyed and filled with excitement, 46 new teachers joined the Carson City School District in an orientation welcome meeting at the Governor’s Mansion Larry Ruvo Stateroom this morning.

Although Carson City schools won’t officially open their doors to students until Monday, August 16 (K-12) and August 23 (Pre-K), new teacher orientation has traditionally been a celebrated affair with a kick-off fashion in a meeting with Superintendent Richard Stokes and other administrators, principals and directors.

The district was excited to host the event again this year since last year’s event was dropped amid the pandemic restrictions and escalating hybrid schedules.

Following the orientation meeting, the new teachers dispersed to their individually assigned school sites where further welcome meetings and professional development trainings are offered throughout the remainder of the week.

“As kids, I think we all remember how excited and jittery we were for the first day of school, and teachers are no different,” said Merri Pray, professional learning and family engagement coordinator for the Carson City School District. “We are excited to welcome 46 new professionals to our team. They are going to do amazing things for the students of Carson City.”

Back-to-School events and orientations for students will begin next week and will continue Monday through Friday with various welcoming activities.
