The 2016-2017 school year for North Valley Baptist Schools started on Wednesday, September 7. At 8:40 AM, parents, students, and staff members began to gather around the front parking lot. Twenty minutes later, the bell rang, signaling the start of the first day of school. The elementary teachers led their students to their classrooms. The middle school and high school students made their way to the chapel for orientation. After a short day of organizing lockers and desks, introducing new teachers, and studying the rules, the student body was in full motion towards the new school year.
