Stay involved during the journey

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

The time has finally arrived and I’m so excited for you.
Yes, it is hard to believe another year of school is about to start, but it lies here before us.
There is so much preparation that has been done and continues to be done, right up until those bus doors open.
If you are a parent of a kindergarten student, I am most excited for you. This is a journey, not a race and the trip can be largely what you make it.
This is true for every age, every grade, even those headed for the halls of college, those returning to school to earn a degree later in life and just gaining a few needed credits to accomplish a goal.
If you have children in elementary, middle or high school, stay engaged in the journey.
I realize that school is that school is the vocation of our youth. Now I know it would sound better to them if that vocation involved a paycheck, maybe we could call it resume building volunteer work.
The point is, chances are you couldn’t do you job without a few people helping you out, so stay on the journey with your kids.
One of the big keys is to stay involved throughout the entire journey.
Do you know what makes kindergarten so great? The smell of that new box of crayons? The fact that kindergarten teachers are so awesome?
