For many students, today is the last day of the first week of school!

New routines have been put in place. Apprehensive (or excited) kindergartners have found their way to their room. “Old timers” have opened the first chapter in a new year and the big yellow school buses are back on the road.

As a child, I loved the beginning of school. I loved getting my new school supplies and seeing my old friends. I loved the whole idea of a new school year and the vast promise it held.

In writing today, I simply wish to send every student my wish for a great year ahead.

Learn and grow. Share. Be serious and thoughtful. Be creative and original. Have fun and let your mind explore – there is simply so much to know!

Happy New School Year!
Happy First Weekend!
