TROY — School bells were a-ringing bright and early Wednesday morning amid the county fair still going on.

Troy City Schools, as well as St. Patrick’s Catholic School, started Aug. 19.

Troy Superintendent Eric Herman visited the six elementary schools, Van Cleve Sixth Grade Building, Troy Junior High School and Troy High School to see how things were doing.

“It was smooth sailing,” he said. “We didn’t have anything go wrong, everyone seemed to bed doing pretty well.”

The school district had many new hires over the summer, all of whom had a good first day.

“Everyone I’ve talked to felt very comfortable, at ease and like the day went very well,” he said.

St. Patrick Principal Cyndi Cathcart said their first day was uneventful and went very smoothly.

“We have the same enrollment as we did last year,” she said. “We have 146 kids from kindergarten through eighth grade and have about 40 kids in our preschool. It was a pretty good day.”

Troy Christian Schools will start next week.
