It’s that time of year!
Back-to-school represents a fresh start for both teachers and students. In districts across the country the excitement and anticipation for what this year may bring is palpable.
Though challenges–both persistent and new–will inevitably rear their ugly heads, these opening weeks give school leaders, educators, students, and parents the opportunity to start the year off on the right foot.
Many schools across the country have already welcomed students and teachers to their first days of class, and many more will do so in the coming days and weeks.
To celebrate a new school year, our editors pored through social media to find some of the best posts about back-to-school.
Here are some of our favorites.

This woman, Dr. Robinson, the superintendent of @FtWayneCommSkls, has changed my life by giving me the opportunity to lead in the very best district there is. Hugging her on my 1st day as principal was icing on the cake! (So glad it was captured!) #bringit #edadmin #lovemyjob pic.twitter.com/a9trN5arxN
