CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - Students in Calcasieu Parish returned from summer break and the students at S.P. Arnett Middle School felt all sorts of emotions on their first day.

"It's excitement, it's nervous, it's a little anxiety for some starting a new school," said 8th grade Louisiana History teacher Delicia Mouton. "For the most part, it's just the excitement of being here and seeing their friends again and getting back in the routine of things."

Students began their day shortly after 7 a.m. as parents and guardians dropped off students with bags of supplies and a sign of eagerness to see their friends again.

"My favorite part is just seeing everybody and meeting all the new teachers," said 8th grade student Marci Duhon.

As students weaved through crowded halls and prepped their supplies in class, faculty and staff were also there to help.

"All the adults here are here because they care about kids," said principal Max Caldarera. "Relax and enjoy your school time. Yes, it is for learning but we're going to have a good time while we're learning."

For those who are brand new to campus, students want to let their younger peers know they're on their side.

"Be yourself and just enjoy it while you can," said Duhon. "It goes very fast."

All private schools in Calcasieu Parish will have their first day August 14.
