The Night Before the First Day of School

September 2, 2013

School Doors

If you have been outside this evening, you can feel it in the air.  The cool breeze reminds us that Fall has arrived.  The 2013-2014 school year begins tomorrow morning.  We will welcome 5,300+ students into our buildings – from students heading to kindergarten (with nervous parents anxiously watching) to members of the Class of 2014 (with teary parents wondering how they grew so fast).  We are ready – our staff has been busy preparing to greet our students and quickly get to work.

I am looking forward to a safe and smooth first day to kick off a great school year!    I will leave you with a poem about the opening of the school year…

Twas the night before school
when all through the town
the parents were cheering
it was a riotous sound.

By eight the kids were washed
and tucked into bed
when memories of homework
filled them with dread.

New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too,
new teachers, new friends, the anxiety grew.
The parents just giggled when they heard of this fright
and shouted upstairs “Go to bed! It’s a school night!”
