With Labor Day past, the arrival of the first day of school is upon us. At Ash Point Community School, youngsters scurried around on the playground Sept. 3 while parents tried to capture the moment. Above, Kesh Parent, left, snaps a shot of her daughters, Laiken, left, and Lorelei, before their first day of sixth and fourth grade, respectively.
