 It was the second day of classes at Cole Middle School and the hallways were abuzz.  A half a dozen students darted to the office to excitedly report that they couldn’t open their lockers.

The secretary told them to look for Mr. Varrecchione who was down the hall helping others with the same problem. Vin Varrecchione, who has been the school’s athletic director, just took over as assistant principal.

In the meantime, a small group of students surrounded Mrs. Meyer, the new principal. Alexis Meyer has moved into this role after serving as assistant principal at Cole the last four years. 

Varrecchione said, “I have two middle schoolers myself, a 6th and 8th grader. One of their biggest fears is, ‘Am I going to be able to open my locker the first day?’  It’s tricky the first time you learn how to use a combination lock.  They panic if it doesn’t open on the first try.” 

Meyer laughed in agreement, adding, “It’s a big thing.”
