By the time you are reading this, the first day of school will be over and your hands are probably hurting from filling out all those first week of school forms. Your high school and middle schoolers are happily tapping away on their new laptops and telling you which teachers they like and those they do not. If they are not on a laptop, it might be because you have not filled out the Agreement for Laptop Use (version A) and sent it in with a $50 check. Aaahh, the joys of the first week of school.
With the end of summer fast approaching, students are finishing their last bit of summer homework and savoring the final few days of summer.
Since students leave the end of the school year knowing their schedules for the following year and receive the official schedule two weeks before school starts, students are only waiting for one thing – their laptops.
It’s getting closer – the first day of school is officially less than a week away! It is bitter sweet, as I’m sure it is for most. The summer has been great but always must come to an end.

Can you believe that the first day of school is almost here?
I think I am in denial, or I’m just too busy with other things to even think about back to school. It has definitely been an eventful summer. Some good. Some bad. But school comes around, whether we are ready or not.
