For many of us, August signifies a time of new beginnings. There is an air of excitement as students, parents, and teachers prepare to head back to school.

The school year brings about a time of goal setting and eagerness to be prepared and focused. Parents and guardians challenge their children to make the honor roll, have perfect attendance, and have exemplary conduct.
