Back in the day, “Back to School” came after Labor Day week-end. Summer went on and on. Of course, since our school year started so late, we had neither fall nor spring breaks at our school. Rest from classroom activities came with Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter holidays; teachers’ in-service days; and, the occasional snow day.
The first weeks of school held a certain excitement. Everything seemed new – new classes, new challenges, new teachers and friends. Some classes held our interest ... others, not so much. That’s how life works.
