NORTH READING’S Class of 2034 met for the first time Tuesday afternoon at Ipswich River Park. These incoming kindergarteners will be attending all three of the town’s elementary schools — Batchelder, Little and Hood — starting Friday, September 10. Sporting their oversized NR Hornet t-shirts, they will reunite annually over the next 12 years wearing the same t-shirts to recreate this photo and chronicling their growth as friends and classmates.
