School is back in session. Big yellow buses fill local roadways, and backpack-laden children are a stark contrast to those bathing youngsters we were accustomed to seeing splashing in the local pools.
With their books in tow, children must come to school prepared to learn and grow.
Growing exuberant learners is a parent’s responsibility. Fostering that effervescence and pushing it toward its fullest potential is the job of educators who are finding themselves perched in classrooms facing little ones who aren’t often excited to leave the ease of summer vacation.
The transition from a carefree summer vacation to a structured learning environment can be tough on students, but it’s possible with the support of parents and teachers.
