Another school year together: Otis Orchards Elementary School fourth-grade teacher Lauren Waterbury gives direction to Jaynee Chapman, left, and Gage Bucher, as her students were gathered to assemble the room Tuesday. Waterbury taught the children in the third grade and has moved up with them for this year. “I wanted to bring them back as a community. They have a say in what it looks like. I want them to feel like it’s their place,” Waterbury said. Classes start for the school in the East Valley School District on Aug. 29. (Dan Pelle)
