  1. meme says

    This year when my now 6 year old was going to kindergarten and went to get on the bus the first day and asked me if I would be ok.

  2. Rebecca G says

    My favorite back to school memory is looking behind the bus on my first day of school and realizing my mom had followed the bus to school!

  3. Trisha McKee says

    It was when my daughter went back to school last year. It was her first year of middle school, and she was worried about finding her class. So I took her one afternoon about a week before school started and together we found her class. She was mortified that I would simply stroll in there, but I did not want my baby girl scared about finding her class!

  4. Leilani Caoagdan says

    My favorite back to school memory is seeing all my friends whom I haven’t seen all summer.

  5. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    Every first day was my favorite because we had all new clothes, shoes, accessories, backpacks, etc and it always felt great to be in new clothes!

  6. letessha says

    My fave memory was not able to wait to my new stuff and the smell of new crayons lingering.

  7. chelsea plevinski says

    I loved school supplies, so whenever I got to go buy new ones and put them in my back pack that was the best….of course, my favorite is really going off to college for the first time! That was the best!

  8. Cydnei W says

    My favorite back to school memory was seeing all of my kids hope on to that school bus and wave and blow kisses goodbye. Its such a big step for kids, and knowing that your kids were able to do it, is always a good warming feeling! (:

  9. Kayla says

    My favorite was my first day of high school. We only knew how to get into the building from the main entrance, but the bus stopped at a different door. We had to walk all the way around the building just to get into the main entrance so we could find our first class.

  10. Kim Smith says

    I loved being able to pick out my own backpack and lunch box and being able to go to school with new things. I still have a thing for office supplies

  11. Verna Reynolds says

    My favorite back to school memory was 10 years after the birth of my first child I was able to realize the dream of going to college. I loved buying my own school clothes and supplies. Me and my children would get ready for school together and it was so much fun.

  12. Ericka says

    I don’t really remember but I know I was always excited to see my friends and meet my teacher

  13. Christine Stuntz says

    Back to school shopping topped my list especially in Junior High (middle school) and High School.

  14. Tiffany Greene says

    Seeing my friends again & making new friends!! Getting new school supplies,shoes and clothes!!

  15. Raina Delrio says

    My fave back to school memory was shopping for the perfect pencil box (back then they were made of cardboard and had different designs on them. We also had to get the perfect bookbag and lunch box!

  16. Diane Zielinski says

    I remember getting new clothes and shoes. Besides from that I don’t have much of a memory.

  17. Kim H says

    I had my daughter on my son’s first day of kindergarten, that is my favorite memory!

  20. patricia ciliento says

    i think my favorite school memory would be going to 8th grade. I was on top of the school. I loved it so much.

  21. stephanie parker says

    my birthday is august 28th and when i was in school that was always the first day so i would always be so excited to go to the first day back to school and bring in cupcakes for the class and let everyone sing to me it was always a good way to break the ice and make new friends

  22. Mike W Davis says

    I loved baseball when I was a kid– so with six girls, I thought non of them but I was wrong 5 out of 6 love baseball- then our last one was a boy and he loves it as much as I do. We almost have our own team, we play on weekends when they don’t have a game.

  23. Wendy says

    I still have the image of my oldest son on the first day of kindergarten burned into my head. It’s my favorite!!

  24. Mia Dentice Carey says

    My Italian grandmother(Nana) taking me school shopping when I was going into Kindergarten & I got a Navy Blue Dress with a frog on it. My mom picking me up from school and taking pictures of me holding a picture I colored. =)

  25. Melani Names says

    Starting junior high was one of my favorite back to school days. I had attended 5 different elementary schools that were and all of them converged at the same junior high! There were so many kids that I already knew!

  26. elaine scotton says

    it was ‘cupcake day’ and if you had a nickel, you could buy one on cupcake day in school. I remember waking up on the floor and found out i fell out of bed and broke my collar bone but I was soooo heading to get my cupcake, and told my mom, i was alright. (kindergarten)

  27. mary ellen ashenfelder says

    Loved going shopping for new shoes and school supplies with my mom and my sisters.

  28. says

    Yesterday, I was walking my 8 year old daughter to school, and she grabbed my hand and held it all the way there. I was watching our shadow walking holding hands…I guess it is still cool to hold mom’s hand, even if we are not crossing the street. Such a sweet baby girl!

  29. Alicia Ransom says

    My favorite back to school memories are from my grade school years when me & my aunt(she was my best friend & we were only 2 months apart) were in the same grade and we would go back to shopping and get everything alike but in different colors & then then when we were in high school she passed away,6 days after her 16th B-day( she had brain cancer). So I hold these memories very close to my heart.

  30. Theresa Hagan says

    After the first week of Kindergaren & my son started to go to school without crying!! Knowing we would both be ok!

  31. Crystal F says

    Both of my girls first day of Kindergarten are very special. It broke my heart that they were old enough to go to school. They were suppose to stay my little babies forever. thank you!

  32. says

    My fave. memories are the ones whrn we would all get together after the new school year and see what everyone had been up to all summer and how we had all grown!

  33. brandy says

    my favorite school memory is the day I started High School. I was so nervous but I had my best friends with me and it turned out to be one of the best school days that year!

  34. Shannon M Gallagher says

    Meeting my kindergarten teacher who had pink hair, then found out that sometimes she dyed it blue too! I will never forget that lady!

  35. Terri Betz says

    I always loved the smell of freshly sharpened pencils during Penmanship class! 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. Jules says

    My fave memory was when I was in first grade I had ripped off two toe nails running on some barrel at the beach and my friends pulled me around in a little red wagon until I could walk;)

  37. Connie Bolick Lee says

    I think the best memory was the getting new clothes, shoes, and school supplies every year, and the excitement of the first day back!

  38. K.Pugh says

    My oldest son a beautiful boy is quite shy. Needless to say I was quietly worried about him starting kindergarten last year. I will never forget picking him up from his first day at his new school. I walked in an he was so engaged with the other kids, and his teacher saying he had loved the day and been such a joy.

  39. Brynn says

    When i was in first grade i was really nervous and had a hard time. But i remember every day that first week my mom would pack little notes in my lunch box reminding me that she loved me and that school was fun! It really boosted my confidence and made me feel special 🙂

  40. Toni W. says

    My favorite back to school memory is getting to go shopping with my mom to pick out new clothes and shoes, along with new supplies!

  41. says

    I remember my last year of high school, how excited I was when I realized it was my last year of back to school! 🙂

  42. says

    Everyone knows how PROUD I am of my Chazman, always but one the first day of school last year when his teacher from the year before saw us, she walked up and hugged us and said that she hoped that her whole class was like Chaz. Well behaved, a true joy and one that loved to learn. Ohhhh, that did this momma even more proud.

  43. Maureen says

    The day I turned 13 was also the first day of 8th grade. While not exactly where you wanted to spend your birthday it was a pretty good day. I remember the outfit I wore (I wouldn’t wear it now but I thought I was cool then). I remember that there was a cake at school for me and balloons and I remember going out to dinner with my family.

  44. says

    The one that is the most memorable to me right now is when I got my certificate in the mail stating that I made the deans list. The next best was the first day of school every year. The first day was always the best for me because we took pics with the teacher and I try to do my best to continue that tradition with my children now.

  45. Michelle Gregory says

    I always loved the first day of school, seeing all the friends you hadn’t seen since the last school year.

  46. Delisa G says

    My favorite back to school memory would have to be from the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year, when I took my daughter for her 3rd grade open house. My daughter was absolutely ecstatic to find that her FAVORITE teacher in the school was going to be HER third grade teacher. She’s generally pretty happy about starting a new school year, but for third grade, she was overjoyed, and THAT makes for a happy mommy!

    • says

      This is a fantastic memory. My daughter is starting third grade this year also. We register tomorrow and hoping for a particular teacher. It’s beautiful anyway you slice it!
