BEDFORD PARK -

Students at St. Philip Neri Catholic School in Bedford Park learned how to pose for pictures on the red carpet on their first day of classes this year.

New principal Ajeia Beebe says she rolled over the red carpet idea from her former school, literally.

"The fact that I'm new, I wanted to bring something joyous to the location," she says.

After the flashy entrance, things grew more somber when the school held a prayer ceremony for families devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
