Well, moms (and Mr. moms), we made it! Barrington 220 students in grades 1 through 12 went back to school on Tuesday, August 20th. Now that summer break is over, that means we get to take a breather and a little time out for ourselves while our kids get back to learning. So we’ve lined up some prizes that will help you relax a little and celebrate the start of your new routine with a Back-to-School Photo Contest.
To enter the contest, all you have to do is submit a photo you’ve snapped of your own kids heading back to school this week or next. We’ve lined up three local prizes that you’re going to LOVE and there will be three winners. We’ll keep the contest open for two weeks since some of our kids, including my own preschoolers, won’t head back to school until after Labor Day. (Don’t remember putting his collar up before school that day, but there it is ;).)
We’ll open it up to a vote or draw three winners and announce their names on Friday, September 6th. By then, we should all be back into our new school year grooves, right? Wouldn’t that be a great time to enjoy one of these three prizes perfect for a little post-summer-break pampering?
