Students at Eden Prairie’s Performing Institute of Minnesota (PiM) Arts High School headed back to class on Monday, Aug. 28, after the summer break.
Rob Thompson, the school’s director of communications and development, said there was “lots of good energy and excitement” on the first day, which featured an all-school assembly. A kick-off video for the school year can be viewed here.
