Heading Back to School in Class

08/27/2012 in

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For parents, anyway… With another summer in the books, it’s time to think about what many children dread doing: Heading back inside after the summer outdoors.

Fortunately, students can sweeten the experience by changing their wardrobe this fall and shopping for school supplies.

Drop by Century 21 for both trendy and affordable garb. At up to 65% off of designer retail prices, everyone from the Assistant Vice Principal to Sophie in second period English class can turn some heads with their new threads.

For the athletes in the family, sprint over to Modell’s – on Broadway or on Chambers Street – for a cool selection of sporting goods.

If you’re searching for a new laptop, tablet or educational software, J&R has a variety of electronics to help with the homework.  And, for the youngest ones, J&R Junior carries Arts & Crafts supplies and musical instruments, and even offers educational classes.

As far as school necessities go, Staples has everything – from spiral notebooks to colored pens to 8-gig flash drives. (And, of course, pink erasers!)

While you don’t know yet how the school year will treat you, at least you can earn an A+ for preparation.
