Back to school

By Chuck Kajer

Children in New Prague, along with the rest of Minnesota, will be exchanging skateboards, sunglasses and bicycles for backpacks, pencils and calculators next week. For the next nine months, parents will be entrusting their children to the care of a school system that has the task of preparing them to go out in the world with the skills and experiences needed to succeed.

Teachers spend countless hours preparing their lesson plans and making preparations for their classrooms. Most students look toward the start of another school year with a combination of dread and anticipation, sorry that the freedoms of summer vacation are over, but looking forward to another year of exploring the world and sharing time with friends.

Parents also work to prepare for the school year, making sure their children have all the materials needed for the classroom and encouraging their children to work hard and take advantage of the opportunities that await them in the schools.

The success of a community depends greatly on the success of its schools. Students, whether they are a high school senior preparing to go to college or a kindergarten student beginning the journey through the school system, need to know the adults around them support them and support the schools.
