A new school year, everywhere I go. Or at least in my house. Our dining room table is littered with (not kidding) 104 crayons, 13 glue sticks, eight boxes of tissues, 48 number two pencils, a coloring book, four cans of Play-doh, and two pink erasers. Oh, and an intensely glittered Princess Sophia backpack and coordinating lunchbox and water bottle.
Yep, it's time for shiny new school supplies, new kicks, new beginnings, new adventures, and not to mention, um, SENIOR YEAR (yeah, I'm talkin' to you c/o 2016). And with the onset of the new school year, let us not forget fall sports, sweater weather, jumping into giant piles of leaves, bonfires, Homecoming, pep rallies, and pumpkin flavored stuff, you know...what fall is really about.
But enough rhapsodizing. Some reminders:
This summer you were responsible for:
You are NOW responsible for preparing your two essays on literary merit. If you need a reminder about the assignment, check out the task sheet one more time.

For the first day, be prepared to get your hands dirty, get down to business, and have some FUN!
Yeah. Senior year, guys. Let's make it count!
