The township was abuzz with activity this morning as students woke up early and made their way to the first day of class for the 2012-13 school year.
The Patch has set up this page for patents and students to share their photos, tips and thoughts about the new school year.
You can upload your pictures into the photo gallery, or leave a comment below.
Here are a few photos of the scene in front Redwood Elementary School a few hours ago.
In the first photo, crossing guard Rocio Diaz slows down traffic for students and parents to safely cross Redwood and Woodland avenues.

And, finally, Redwood School students welcomed their principal and teachers with floral bouquets.
