Summer Vacation is over for me...

The sun is shining.
Backyard is cool and comfortable.
And I'm heading back to work (school).
As I look back on my time off, I feel very blessed.
I did things that I loved to do.
Spent time with those that I love.

Now, it is time for me to gear up and get ready
for all those students who will be stepping into
High School.
Some students will be anxious, others scared.
Some will be so excited, some just plain silly.
All of them need to feel that they belong.

And when school starts,
I will be waiting for each of them ...

with a BIG smile.


*About 2 weeks before school starts: Begin going to bed and getting up on a school schedule.
*The weekend before school starts: Don't make any stressful plans for big events or trips.
*Don't forget to check out that bus schedule!
*Call your school or organization and get the facts about fall sports teams and social clubs.
