It’s August and that means it’s almost time for students to head back to school for the new year. You probably stocked up on tax-free three-ring binders and mechanical pencils (they still use those, right?) this weekend, this all may be old hat for you.

Whether you’re sending the kids off to school, sitting in class yourself, or standing in front of the class trying to avoid staring into the projector, we want to hear from YOU for our back to school issue coming up.

(Responses will be kept in confidence and minimal personal information will be published. Ex: Eighth grade history, West Ashley.)

PARENTS – We want to hear from you with your advice to other parents heading into the new school year. Particularly if you’ve gone through major transitions with your students — changing schools, graduating, etc. — you have advice that other parents could use. Please share your thoughts with us.

TEACHERS – You’re the motor that keeps it going and you know you have a few words of advice for your students and their parents. We’d love your thoughts as well.
