Monday was the first day of the 2013-14 school year for Smithtown students.
Students of all ages put on their favorite outfits, grabbed backpacks full of supplies and jumped on the school bus. Some joyfully reuniting with friends while younger students might have had a moment of hesitation.
Check out the photos above to see how these kids took on the start of the school year.
