Happy New Year!

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

I very much enjoyed Kevin’s ode to the new school year. Beginning again . . . the possibilities seem endless! 

This is the year I will learn Greek; this is the year I will master calculus; this is the year I’ll get around to reading all those French novels I’ve been meaning to read. 

He concludes: 

So, Happy New Year’s, students. My advice is to take Latin and physics rather than Spanish and biology, and to read the great books while you’re still young enough to really enjoy them, but it’s up to you — all of it, really, is up to you.

Read the whole thing. Send it to a student. Buy an apple for a teacher.
