Hey, kids: Someone is thinking about you todayTuesday, September 03, 2013 by: SooToday.com Staff
This is a big day in the lives of many youngsters and their families.
And provincial NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has offered her thoughts via a news release.
“On behalf of New Democrats, I want to wish children and young adults across Ontario a happy and safe return to school today. After a summer of fun, it’s time to hit the books. It’s time to reconnect with old friends and to meet new teachers. It’s time for new challenges a fresh star," Horwath notes.
"I also want to send encouragement to my fellow parents as you send your children off to school again and for the first time. Not only are your kids learning new subjects, but they are gaining the knowledge and skills that will help grow our province in the future. I’d like to send my thanks to all the teachers, support and administrative workers, bus drivers, and custodial staff for your continued dedication. As a mom and as a leader, I appreciate your hard work.
"Happy back-to-school, Ontario.”
