When Is The First Day of School in South Dakota?
Does it seem that this summer has just been a flash before us? Snap out of it! The start of school for some South Dakota students is less than a month away.
Hard to believe that those summer vacation trips will end shortly as student-athletes begin fall practice. Early morning band rehearsals at the crack of dawn. Teacher in-service days. And, trips to the store with mom to buy school supplies and new clothes.
Incoming first-year students will be faced with climbing stairs to college dorm rooms only to have dad ask, "Why do you need this?"
