The first day of school for most students in Minnesota is the day after Labor Day, Tue. Sept. 3. To mark the occasion in Waterville, Minn. The school district welcomes students back to school by rolling out a green carpet, the school color, for them. The idea is to make them seem like celebrities coming back to school with teachers and administration greeting them all outside the building.
