Writing Prompt: Back to School!

BackToSchool Writing Prompt: Back to School!

In most parts of the world, kids attend school all year round, and only have the month of August off. My friend from Japan talked about when he moved to the U.S., he was thrilled to have June, July, and August off. He said he didn’t know what to do with himself! (His mom promptly enrolled him in “summer classes” – poor guy). Another friend who recently went to London mentioned how the whole country practically shuts down for “holiday” in August. So I guess we should be grateful for small blessings like 2 ½ months of summer vacation!

But, now back-to-school time is here. The memories of summer will be tucked away, to make room for new memories in the coming school year (sniff sniff).

So, for today’s Writing Prompt we want to hear from you about Back-to-School:

What are you most looking forward to? What are you most dreading? What are your goals for the coming school year? What do you hope to accomplish?

Let us know in the Comments below!

    I’m looking forward to this whole year, cuz i’m going into 8th grade. i’m dreading going back cuz it means i have to get up eaarly again. my goals are 4 consecutive terms on high honor roll. I hope to finally get a goal in soccer, and be a goalie too.

    Me, I can’t wait to go back to school! All I pretty much do is make stories and read any books that I can get my hands on. Most kids would probably dread about homework but I don’t. For some reason, I look forward to have homework! Weird, right? I swear on the river Styx that I will be a better person to everyone and get epic grades.

    I cant wait to see my buddies again, I am dreading to see my crush (I get distracted), and being stuck in the same class as the mean/popular girls, my goal is to get good grades, and become more outgoing.

    I’m actually pretty excited. This is my first year of middle-school, so I’m pretty psyched. I only have to have frour classes a day, and I get to wake up about an hour earlier than I had to last year, so that’s nice too. The only thing i don’t like about the school so far, is what they gave me for the summer. My new school gave me homework! During summer! That doesn’t even make any sense! Also, I don’t have to wear uniform like at my elementary school. So I’m pretty excited.

    This will be my first year in middle school. The school I attended last year was closed and many people were sad. Most of my friends are going to attend our home school but I am going to attend a different one. I look forward to making new friends. I don`t have to wear uniforms this year and I am happy about that. I plan to study hard and continue to make good grades. I really think I will enjoy my new school this year.
