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.
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.
Don't stress about starting a new school year. You've got so much to look forward to!
