Don’t let school be a drag, have a blast this year by focusing on the positive.

We know: the ending of summer always feels tragic. No more pool parties. No more lazy summer days. Parents are back to getting kids out the door and kids are adjusting to pay attention in class.

Summer’s end evokes images of sulky students mopping around the house. But what if you could change all that with the power of positivity?

Sure, classes can be a drag, but there are so many fun things about the school year to get excited about. Before you slip into an end of summer depression, try focusing on these positive things:
