1. Back to School Photos
Hopefully your children’s “back to school” outfits are already chosen because today is the first day of school for all Hendrick Hudson and Lakeland Central School District students. Tomorrow, Peekskill City School District kids start classes again. Show us how cool, adorable, jaded or excited your kids look by sharing back to school photos – getting on the bus, back packs packed, collection of the coolest back to school gear (Family Guy flash drives?), seniors driving off in their cars, etc. Please add the photos here or just text them to me at 914-486-0542 or email them to Elizabeth.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include names, ages and schools in your texts and emails.
Thanks in advance for sharing! Also, see number 5 below. You definitely want to make sure your child is appropriately dressed for the weather.
