Port Chester Welcomes Back Students for 2023-24 School Year

Students in Class thumbnail249287

Greeted by their teachers and administrators, Port Chester students returned to school on Sept. 7 and began the 2023-2024 school year with a renewed sense of excitement.

The day was filled with learning as students across the district – from the youngest kindergartners to high school seniors – reconnected with friends, met new teachers, organized their school supplies, learned about their schedules and engaged in different educational activities.

“It is truly an honor to celebrate a new school year,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Aurelia Henriquez said. “The energy and excitement of opening our doors for the first day of school is nothing less than magical. We are so proud to have our students back and to begin a new journey. Every September, we have the opportunity to start anew and improve upon the prior year. Welcome to the 2023-2024 academic year. Let’s continue to work together to make this the very best year yet.”
