As kids head back to school, family members do what’s needed to make certain they get off to a good start. Here Robin Billie registers her grandson Ian Thompson at Park Elementary School in Holbrook after doing the same for her granddaughter Jasmine Thompson at Hulet Elementary School. Both kids will be living with their grandmother during their mother’s military deployment. Ashley (Billie) Thompson, a 2001 graduate of Holbrook High School, serves in the Army as an E3, and will be deployed to either Germany or South Korea for the next two years. The new school year begins July 30 in Win-slow, Aug. 1 in Holbrook and Aug. 8 in Joseph City.
