First of all, as an adult, I apologize to all students for the rash of commercials for back to school.
Can you imagine if we had to see commercials for all of the things we have to do at work, over and over again?
Yes, the time is almost here, but it seems so very early.
Registration for middle school is Friday and Monday, with a great orientation on Aug. 12 and high school registration is Aug. 5-6.
Elementary schools are getting ready for the meet the teacher and the days when families can drop off the multitude of school supplies. Oh, those are some really fun days when the whole family can enjoy the gatherings.
This year the middle school has a great new program for the incoming seventh graders and the high school has one for freshmen.
Staff members have been taking classes and putting plans in place for new programs and projects.
A great deal of landscaping has taken place to trim the weeds, plant new things and add some new items for the upcoming school year.
Custodian and facilities staff have been working hard, painting, cleaning and waxing to put a shine on everything in sight.
Now the rest is up to parents and caregivers. After a bit more time for fun, it will be time to get a few things in order for the big day.
