Palm Beach County School
Begins In One Week!
August 20th is around the corner! The first day of school for Canyon Isles, Canyon Lakes, Canyon Springs and Canyon Trails is just one week away! Can you believe how quickly the summer flew by?? What a summer it was! Huge movie box office releases and of course the Summer Olympics. However, now we turn our attention to fresh boxes of crayons, new pens and pencils, notebooks with new pages, book covers and backpacks.
One of my favorite resources for school supply shopping is Office Depot, they have a super web page that breaks down student needs by grade level (click here for Office Depot school supplies), it’s a convenient way to get a head start on shopping before supply lists are given out. Another great reason to shop Office Depot for supplies? They have partnered with the Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit foundation for youths led by Lady Gaga “to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated.” Hey, if you're kids don't think you're cool yet, just tell them you're shopping for school supplies where Lady Gaga shops!
School supplies are just one part of the back to school rush. Immunizations for new Palm Beach County students is a big task to complete before the school year. Here is a full list of requirements by the Florida Department of Health if your child is just entering kindergarten or is transferring from out of state Florida Immunization Requirements. The Palm Beach County School Board has set up a great website with FAQs and information for the new school year. If you have any questions about your Canyon Isles, Canyon Lakes, Canyon Springs or Canyon Trails student, regarding bus routes, registration, meal programs or anything else click here to find lots of helpful school information.
There are three designated schools for Canyon Isles, Canyon Lakes, Canyon Springs and Canyon Trails students; Sunset Palms Elementary, Odyssey Middle School and Olympic Heights Community High School. Next August Canyon Isles, Canyon Lakes, Canyon Springs and Canyon Trails middle and high school students might be attending Somerst Charter School if it is built out in time. The proposal for the new school was just approved on July 26th so there is a long way to go before the start of the 2013 school year.
The morning of August 20th will be exciting for younger students and most likely dreaded by older ones. We don’t have any advice for Canyon parents of teens that will surely battle the alarm clock next Monday, other than to say - soon they’ll be in college! For all you Canyon parents with younger children that may be a little anxious about the first day of school; here is a cute little song we found that may help to ease their back to school nerves.
I'm excited because it's my first day!
I'm gonna learn and I'm gonna play!
It is time for us to go, now.
We're gonna ride that school bus-
Must hurry to class, the teacher's waiting for us!”
What a wonderful feeling, on my first day!”
