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!

    Well, I absolutely love summer. This summer I went on a trip out West to Grand Canyon, California, yada,yada and it was awesome! But by the time I got back, I wanted to go back to school, and then once my wish had been granted, I wanted to get out of the place! Sometimes I wish that I could clone myself and go to Fiji instead. I hope to keep up the A’s I get, and I hope to be a soccer, basketball, and track star! I love my english teacher so I think im all set for the year. Except for those weekly tests. . .

    This school year in middle school the thing that I am looking forward to most is harder academic challenges. The thing that I am dreading is longer school hours. My goal is to reach high academic goals. I want my accomplishment to be that I get on the A/B honor roll.
