GET READY! It takes a village to prepare the children of our community for school!
Remember the excitement of heading back to school? Summer, at last, had grown boring. The novelty had worn off the neighborhood swimming pool. By the time August rolled around, most of us were ready to get back into the routine school provides.
Picking out new notebooks for the upcoming school year was a joyous rite of passage. (If you’re a certain age, you’ll remember the must-have Trapper Keeper.)
But there are many families among us for whom back-to-school shopping isn’t a ritual. School immunizations aren’t as easy as scheduling an appointment with our familiar and much-loved pediatrician.
For those families, CFSC agencies, including the HopeWorks agencies, are back-to-school angels. Here’s a look at some of the ways our steadfast team is helping ensure every child in our community starts school ready to learn.
