First Day of School!

Whitko Creates Hashtag #Whitko1stDay2019
See All the First Day Fun Now


The first day of school is a time honored tradition, a right of passage, and for many waking up within the Whitko Community School District, it's an unofficial picture day.

Students from all around the district woke up to parents who were up early, had fixed breakfast, and were ready to take an annual photo of their child's first day.

"Man where do I even begin with this little big guy. Today is his first day of 1st grade. Little guy is so nervous. I'm sure he will go far and wide and beyond in this world. I love you Drake Michael and mammal hopes you have an awesome day. 😘 To the moon and beyond and always and for ever." Those were the words of parents Jack N Sarah Abbot sending their son to school.

Meanwhile, Whitko's own Student Resource Officer (SRO) Tim Clark, posted his own 1st Day of School photo with his briefcase in tow. "Ready for my first day of school for 2019-2020!!! Let’s have a FANTASTIC year Whitko Community Schools!!!" was posted to his facebook account.

The idea began to take shape when Whitko posted to it's webpage a fun hashtag and asked it's followers to tag their photos using the hashtag and in return, their photos might appear on the Whitko Community Schools Facebook Page. From there, it seemed to take shape on both Facebook and Instagram, as Whitko updated their stories and pages regularly from around 9am until noon August 8th.

To join in on the fun, and maybe have your photo shared by the schools page, just tag your photo with #whitko1stDay2019, or visit the hashtag itself to see all the photos made public on social media.
