When the bells stop ringing…

New school year. It’s the start of another school year. For some school has been in session since July (no, I’m not kidding) while for others, Labor Day represents the last breath of summer. Regardless of when school starts, what unites students and educators across the country are the ringing of bells. Ringing bells to start a day, create multiple class periods, breaks for lunch, even dismissal bells. The ringing of daily bells begins the circle of school life and brings Hope for countless unknown and amazing opportunities to be discovered.
