The Newcomerstown Teachers Association and Project Hope sponsored this year's Newcomerstown Schools' Back to School Fair last Tuesday at the West Elementary School. Students, along with their parents or guardians, were able to visit different agencies that provide services in the community, as well receive school supplies and free haircuts by local stylists. Here, Dominic Barry, 7, receives a haircut from Angie Hlad, a third grade special education teacher at West School who is also a licensed cosmetologist.
