This week, across Massachusetts, students of all ages are headed back to school. Soon, seeing children with backpacks waiting at the bus stop will become a part of the normal routine. You may even start to use your GPS to find a quicker route around school traffic jams. These students (who are WAY too small for those desks) are in a mechanical drawing class at the old Technical High School in Newton in the early 1900s.
One of the traditions that most families experience during the first week of school is taking a photo of children preparing to go back to school. This year, Wicked Local is happy to be a part of a Back to School photo contest. Click this link, register, and submit your photo of your child’s first day of school. The winner will receive a $250 gift card. Take part and share your memories with us.
