Shalom Kitah aleph

Google had a special logo today for the first day of school in Israel.
For the first time ever, school started in August instead of on September 1.
Also a first, a victory of last year's social justice movement--little kids aged 3 and 4 can now attend pre-kindergarten tuition-free.
Over two million K-12 pupils headed back to school today.

May all our kids learn a lot and enjoy being together.
And may they stay safe in this coming year of uncertainty.

Wonderful where alike is possible, and happening. School officially starts here on Sept. 11th, yet the very next day there will be a 24h strike of the teachers ...

Please have a good Tuesday.

I have never heard of a social justice movement having clearly visible successes for ordinary families. Brilliant news :)

Considering that your new year will begin at the end of September, you are probably right wishing them well.

Ahhhh... I just posted something for tomorrow about KC's first week of school. I think it was more traumatic for her mommy and grandmother (me).
