|When we return to session, I plan to introduce a Resolution designating the weeks of August 23, 2015 – August 29, 2015 and August 30, 2015 – September 5, 2015 as “Back to School Weeks" in Pennsylvania.
As many of you know, in Pennsylvania, we have over 1.7 million school-aged students returning to schools across the Commonwealth this fall. This is the time of the year when students heading back to school essentially typifies the end of summer and with that comes the excitement, and sometimes, the trepidation for some of the students and their families with the onset of the new school year. With that said, if is my belief that the Commonwealth should recognize and support students and their families during this stressful time by encouraging them to embrace the challenges that come with preparing for the new school year.
As such, it is with these reasons in mind that I am introducing this Resolution. If you have any questions, please contact my Legislative Assistant, Nilda Jenkins, at (717) 787-3181.
