Reasons to celebrate new school year
1. new school supplies-great back to school deals
2. enjoying now near-empty field trip spots like the zoo, sea world, museums
4. anticipation of new books and subjects to explore this year
5. begin reading out loud together new books
6. get back into a predictible, stable routine
7. Art class anyone?
8. new year/new goals
9. no more being booted off public playgrounds because daycare camps with 100 children take over and occupy. (I'm sorry, but 120 kids and 4 swings is not going to work out well...)
10. beach day- because we can!
11. this will be the year we learn Latin!!! (maybe)
12. now library days have a purpose
13. during/after school snacks and poetry
