As more students and teachers welcome a new school year, the Bridgeport Bulldogs get back into the swing of things and as new superintendent joined the students for the first day on Thursday.
Students and staff arrived on campus anxious to get into the groove of a new school year and as the Bridgeport School District entered into a new day in academia, so did a new leader for the district; following the retirement of former superintendent Ted Downing, “Being a superintendent is a great move for me; so I’m really thankful for that opportunity the school board has given me. (I) Had an opportunity to work with the staff the last couple of days, they’ve been great! Our Bulldog Pride Night was a huge success, we had a huge turn out and I’m just excited to get started and meet the families and meet the kids,” said new Superintendent, Zac Shutler.
Some students may have struggled at go, when it came to getting up, but that didn’t stifle their excitement to begin a their senior year, “Getting up early is not my strong suit, but I’m excited to be here actually, so it’s nice being back,” said Senior and student council president, Chase McCormick.
Shutler also said the school wouldn’t be able to do all of the wonderful things they do without the community, students, and staff and looks forward to the continued success of the school district.
