LMSD Welcomes Back Students for the 2023-24 School Year!

Tuesday, September 5th marked the beginning of the 2023-24 academic year in Lower Merion School District as faculty and staff were thrilled to welcome back more than 8,700 students throughout the District's eleven schools! Opening day activities included school tours, "get-to-know-you" and icebreaker activities, class assemblies and lots of catching up after summer vacation! We hope all students, staff and families enjoy a happy and healthy start to the school year!

We invited everyone to share their own first day photos with us on social media using the hashtag #LMSD1stDay. The first slideshow below includes all of the submissions we received through social media as of Tuesday afternoon, but we will continue to update the post throughout the week as more entries come in! Thank you to everyone who participated! Please be sure to check out all of our Opening Day slideshows at the respective links below, including photos from Harriton, Lower Merion, Bala Cynwyd, Black Rock, Welsh Valley, Cynwyd, Gladwyne and Penn Valley!
