After months of online learning, this fall students are finally going back-to-school, this time with lots to look forward to. In many cases across the U.S. and Canada, the rules for in-person learning will lift. Masks will be optional. School buses and libraries will run again. Extracurricular activities including sports teams, field trips, and choirs will be back. While this is an exciting moment for students, teachers, parents and communities, it's also coming with some apprehension. Health experts are talking about a potential 4th wave. Parents are concerned about their kids' health and safety. Plus, there's predicted shortages on school supplies due to supply chain interruptions. With everything going on, it helps to send positive messages and uplifting gifts. Useful back-to-school promotional products are one way to do so.
