Like you, most students are are curious about returning to school and have begun to think about their new year and the experiences they will have. Will you get to keep my old friendships or make new ones? What will you enjoy learning about this year? Who will my teacher be and what will my classroom look like?

The Washington Post dedicates a section of their newspaper that is written especially for students to read. KidsPost asked students to share their thoughts about back-to-school and their interest. The following are only three examples submitted to KidsPost:

I am excited for third grade, because there will be fun art and crafts, movies, popsicles and popcorn. I wish I will have more field trips in third grade. I wish to study more interesting insects, such as ladybugs. Maybe this year we’re going to study dead skeletons. Cool, I can’t wait! I think third grade is going to rock!

When I go back to school, I hope it will be fun but also educational. There are always new things and old things to learn about. I want to learn new things about social studies, spelling and math. I’m going into fifth grade and I will have a great teacher. . . . I also want to learn more things about basketball moves and drills.

It’s that time again, when the first bell of the school year rings, symbolizing new beginnings and an awakening of knowledge. For me, it’s the start of middle school, and that means changes — lockers, associating with older kids, switching classes, independence and increased homework. There may be drama and conflict, and my goal is to avoid that, work hard and embrace all that school offers.
