A short summer

Heavy snowfalls that closed schools in many areas last winter left an indelible mark on the summer.  To meet the minimum number of required student attendance days, many children attended classes through June.

For children who are heading back to school now, the summer seemed incredibly short.  Those kids are right: it was.

Students who  haven’t had the psychological or schedule break that boosts their desire to return to the classroom might need more weekend  “downtime,” even though fall sports are gearing up.  If your child had an abbreviated vacation from school, consider downsizing the list of activities to allow time to just hang out.
