Whether you are a parent, student or teacher, in some way or another, you are probably saying “goodbye” to summer and “hello” to a brand new school year. Elementary school teachers everywhere are working hard to prepare for a new batch of students.

WARNING TOWN — Warnings and rules are usually there to help protect us, but they’re also kind of obnoxious. I mean, we’re adults, right? Who wants to be told what to do?
