Slowly but surely though, the calendar inches its way toward August and the next thing you know, summer is over and it’s time for school to resume once again.
Perhaps starting classes, homework and studying aren’t looked on with anticipation and eagerness but there is generally a drumbeat of excitement with the return to school. Excitement over sharing about your summer adventures, new confidence as you’ve continued to grow and live out new experiences, regaining relationships with friends, mentors and new seasons of sports and activities to pour your passions and talents into. It’s a reset of sorts; for the student, the teacher, the parent, the administrator and all of those on the perifory. Regardless of which of those categories you fit into, why not start the next season with a backpack upgrade.
