ABOVE LEFT: Lenihan Intermediate School students got to stretch their legs as they played color tag during gym class on the first day of school. A color was picked before each round, and students whose clothes matched that color were “it,” and were chased around the gym. ABOVE RIGHT: The first day of school can be full of emotions, and parents and their children could be seen embracing in front of Marshalltown school buildings, such as Anson Elementary, before the students walked into class. AT RIGHT: Marshalltown High School science teacher Erica Malloy went over her class syllabus with students, preparing them for the semester and setting expectations for the class.
