Just got the email that our school's annual "Popsicles with the Principal" will be happening next week... It's something that every kid at the primary school looks forward to as part of kicking off the new school year. The principal and some of the school's adminstrative staff spend an evening at the playground offering popsicles to the kids. It's a chance for kids to reconnect with classmates, and for parents to chat with one another as well. A very nice (and very simple) event.
I know many have already gone back to school for the year, but even so... Does your school have any kind of welcome back event?
