Well ATL, if you have school age kids, the relaxed summer schedule is over! Class is in session and getting kids ready for school can create anxiety and stress (especially for parents of 1st time students). Most counties will start or have started classes this week. And in honor of that, some school systems & organizations are hosting events around Georgia for parents and students. Most events were held last weekend, but there are still a few events left to take advantage of.
Check out some of the events below, inhale & exhale and let’s get these kids ready for the world!
