Heading Back to School with the ABCs of Life

Heading Back to School with the ABCs of Life

The lunches are made. The backpacks are filled with school supplies. Brand new gym shoes have all been bought. Summer has passed all too quickly, and the night before the start of the new school year is here.

This is the perfect time of year to share an inspirational message from Byron V. Garrett, the founder and chairman of the National Family Engagement Alliance. The NFEA is an organization that provide resources to educate and mobilize individuals, families, and organizations to ensure student success.

I first heard Byron at Parenting Magazine’s Mom Congress. He was so motivational. He was one of my favorite speakers at the conference. Take a look!

Here is wishing all the students from kindergarten through college a successful year! Please feel free to comment, tweet, share, or contact me at lisa.schoolzone@gmail.com
