Back to School -- Yeah!

I love school and I particularly love back to school time (yes, you can call me a nerd). I think it's the newness, the sense of possibility, the undiscovered potential of another school year -- and all of the cool new supplies you can buy.

So it has been great this past week getting all of the phone calls and emails from teachers booking for the year ahead. The plan and outline for the year ahead is starting to come together. It's fun to think of all that's going to be done in the next ten months.

My first class of the school term is a cemetery tour in September. Who knows what the weather will be like but I'm hoping for gorgeous weather (and preparing for anything). And we already have several of the Downtown Lethbridge Treasure Hunt programs booked (some for October, some for June). It's incredibly rewarding and fun to observe grade 2 students exploring and discovering their downtown and the fabulous history and stories located there. And several classes have already booked for the Christmas program in December. It's a good thing we're sending out an invitation to our Galt volunteers to help create hundreds of doll bodies to get ready for the program.

And that's even before our school newsletter has gone out. The newsletter is going in the mail today so I'm hoping it will get to schools and teachers sometime next week. If you want a newsletter but don't get one, let me know and I can either ensure one is mailed or emailed to you. Or you can download it from our site.

Here's to all of the students, teachers and parents. And here's to another fabulous school year.
