“There is nothing quite like the anticipation and excitement of the start of a new school year. The smell of freshly sharpened pencils and sight of colorful backpacks exhilarate our children as they venture into new beginnings and embark on new experiences. Children wonder who will be in their class, what they will wear that first day, what lunch period they will have, and to which teacher they were assigned. Parents wonder if their children will make new friends and if they will be educationally challenged as well as socially and emotionally guided. Teachers prepare their classroom and lessons, making them visually appealing and academically effective. Principals organize schedules and assignments in preparation of leading their staff and students into a successful year of education. Nothing beats the mark of a new academic beginning.”
