Today is the day we pack our kids off for their first day back to school.
- If you have an adorable photo of your kid, with a grin from ear-to-ear and with their new backpack on, send it to Marina.Cracchiolo@patch.com if you would like it included in a slideshow of UCS kids' first day back.
- Before you get your kids dressed in their finest back-to-school gear, check out the weather forecast.
- Most kids will return to school to see some new teachers and staff members. At Patch, we went ahead and profiled some of the new UCS staff members. Meet new Monfort Elementary School Principal Karen Zimmerman.
- Finish this sentence on the Shelby-Utica Facebook page, "Now that the kids are back to school, I can go back to ..."
- The Shelby Township Board of Trustees will meet tonight at 7 p.m. At the meeting, they will discuss a report that recommends the police department shave $1 million from its operational costs.
