VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- It's back to school for thousands of kids in Valdosta.

For teachers, that means having their classrooms ready for learning.

For kids, it might be something like making new friends and enjoying recess.

At least these kids at Pinevale Elementary seem to agree.

"I was looking forward to meeting my new teachers and my new friends and my new classmates and learning all their names”, says Janiah Lopez, a 5th grader.

"Music, P.E., and recess”, says Cayla Council, a 2nd grader.

Fourth grader, Zaymar Jackson says, "I just really missed all my friends.”

Ten city schools in Valdosta opened their doors Friday morning.
