Well, sad to say, it is almost that time for school to start back. First day for Pell City School System students will be Tuesday, Aug. 10. Seems like school was just out. Summer is so short these days.
Thought for today: Surround yourself with people who share your values, not just your interests. (Andy Stanley)
