A box of perfectly pointed crayons, a pristine backpack, a clean locker, a hair cut and a carefully planned outfit laid out the night before. All these things are icons of a new school year.
They are fresh, untarnished and full of promise. So is the school year itself.
Today, thousands of students head back to class as Hardin County Schools open the 2012-13 school year. Elizabethtown Independent Schools resumed Tuesday.
