We have all heard the saying, “The new has worn off.” The phrase many times is used in a negative context meaning that drudgery taken the place of excitement. With a new school year the new also wears off, but that doesn't mean that the excitement must become a thing of the past. We have many activities during a school year which can keep the excitement alive for our students. Picture Day, Homecoming, ball games, and pep rallies are just a few of the activities which can help keep the excitement alive for a school. Boredom many time precedes unwise choices and we have many activities designed to relieve boredom so wise choices can be the rule of the day.
