School's back in


The school year is over. But classes continue through the summer. Kids throughout Pasco County - including these two guys at Weightman Middle in Wesley Chapel - began a three-week term on Monday, hoping to get a leg up on the coming year. And believe it or not, they weren't all that upset. It's "good to get out of the house," said Jackson Ragan, the 11-year-old in the yellow and blue striped shirt. Plus, "We get to know what the school is like before we even get into sixth grade," he added.
