HILLSDALE - Class was in session once again at Wilson High School Sept. 6, the first day of the 2011-2012 academic year.

Students adjusted to new classes, new teachers and changes to the school brought on by budget cuts, retirements and a switch to a block schedule. Now, students alternate between 'A' and 'B' days with four 90-minute periods apiece.

They also had a little fun with activities and an assembly to welcome back returning students and show incoming freshmen the ropes.
