Today was a beautiful, sunny morning around the U.P. as students in grades K-12 went back to school.
Teachers and administrators at Marquette Senior High School greeted students at the door with a smile and a new pencil to start the day.
After what seemed like a short summer, students say they were ready to start a new year.
"I'm looking forward to making progress on stuff that I've been looking forward to all year... new science classes, because I'm a big science freak and just enjoying my last year of high school" says MSHS Senior McKinleigh Claffey.
