Shout out to Sage Elementary School, from Redmond School District, for kicking off the year with the message that “Every Day Matters!” As students arrived for the first day of school, staff, including librarian Suzanne Yeakey pictured here, wore EDM t-shirts and greeted families in the hallways with smiles and words of encouragement. Carter Bower, a fourth grader attending SES, came home from his first day asking for one of those shirts because, as he said, “Every day of school really does matter when you’re in school!”
