Back to School

Back to school time can be exciting, terrifying and/or sad occasion for a variety of different people. Parents are excited to send their kids back to school to enhance their learning experience. That feeling coincides with the fact that their children will now be tired after a long day of learning instead of bouncing off the walls on summer vacation. The terrifying feeling comes from the children starting their first day at a new school. New environment, new friends and new teachers can be a daunting feeling for some.
