Southington boys and girls went back to school last week to kick off the 2016-2017 school year. Students arrived on Thursday, Sept. 1. Some were returning to familiar halls, while others were attending school for the first time. A few were transitioning from elementary to middle school or into the high school. For Evan Radziwon, above, it was a sort of family reunion. The Thalberg kindergartener took some time on his first day to visit his grandmother, school secretary Jaci Belanger.
