Accurate First Day of School Memes
So the week before school starts can be pretty busy… but we know everything you did was incredibly important and productive!
But it’s the night before school, so you can focus on other things! Like packing your lunch, getting your bag ready and sorting out what you’re going to wear…
You will feel ready… and then you’ll get into bed and remember everything you didn’t remember to do. But it’s ok! Tomorrow will still be a great day!
Meeting your kids for the first time
You’ll inevitably spend the first part of the morning meeting and greeting your new students! This includes helping any new students to settle in.
