Back To School Time

When I was a kid school started back after Labor Day in the USA because the weather was just a little cooler. These days some kids around the country start back before August. Classes are starting back earlier and earlier these days for various reasons. The challenges our teachers and students face are tougher and they have to be smarter. Our world has changed and the lessons they need to learn are important to their success.

Around the world kids start at different times. For some of my followers their kids are now enjoying Summer break.

Every student, every teacher, every parent has a lot riding on our schools and they need our support. New teachers are coming in as old teachers are retiring and the standards that need to be met are higher. Elementary, middle and high schools along with colleges need to be safe and secure places of learning too. As school starts back lets keep everyone involved in our thoughts and prayers. They need it now, more than ever.

This is a classic commercial from the office supply chain Staples. For parent’s this is a great time of year because the kids are returning to the classroom.

One thought on “Back To School Time”

  1. Where I live, we have always started school after Labor Day, mainly because we have so much tourism (Virginia Beach, etc.). But it’s interesting to see other places start at different times. When we visited my grandparents in Florida, those schools always started back around the week of my birthday (early August).
