A Whole Lot of “New” This School Year

With September right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about going back to school. First graders and seniors alike have a lot to think about in terms of preparation for the new year. The end of the summer can be a time of mixed emotions- some kids are nervous, while others simply dread the end of their vacation. Here's a list of things to get you excited for your next round of classes.



New stuff

New School

Okay, so this won't apply to all of you- only a select few will be lucky enough to be transitioning to a new school this year. The idea of entering a new school can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Freshmen, this one is for you!

New Classes and Teachers

In my opinion, one of the most exciting things about starting a new school year is receiving a brand new schedule. I remember calling my friends to compare what classes we'd been assigned, and figuring out who was in my homeroom. For the elementary school kids, this time is still just as exciting. You'll be getting the name of your teacher soon! Hopefully, they're as cool as this guy.

New Friends

Finally, a new school year is a great time to meet new people! Who knows? Your new best friend might be sitting right in front of you. Don't be afraid to talk to the other kids- you're all in the same boat. Tackling the school year is a breeze when you're surrounded by great friends.
