The District’s annual bell-ringing ceremony for the first day of school took place this year at AMY Northwest Middle School. On hand to participate were (from left) the mayor’s Chief Education Officer Lori Shorr, School Reform Commission Chair Pedro Ramos, AMY Northwest principal Marco Zanoni, Superintendent William Hite, Chief Academic Officer Penny Nixon, and AMY Northwest 7th grader Benjamin Frazier (in front). The ceremony marked the first day for AMY students at their new Roxborough site. The school relocated from Mount Airy into the building formerly occupied by Levering Elementary. With the relocation, the school has added 130 students.
