The Review wants your pictures celebrating the start of the school year, past and future
Every year, The Review covers the first day of school with pages of photos and interviews highlighting the whole experience for the community.
We showcase not only our own photos of children stepping down from the bus or trying out their lockers, but also proud parents pictures of their little ones clad in their new outfits. We post pictures to our Facebook page and sometimes use them to bolster our own visual art of the big fall event.
This year, the first day of school is Aug. 30 for grades 1-5; sixth-graders and ninth-graders begin the year with an orientation that same day. All other grade levels are expected to report to class on Aug. 31. Kindergarteners will be taking assessments Aug. 30-Sept. 1, and the first day for them will be Sept. 2. (Theres no school on Labor Day, Sept. 5.)
If youd like to showcase your cute kids in their first-day finery as they await the bus or are about to head out the door, let us know. Anyone with amusing tales of the successes and struggles on Day One or leading up to it is also welcome to reach out. Were looking for future photos from this fall and fun photos from the past. Please include your full name; your childs name, grade level and school; the year the photo was taken; and whats happening in the picture.
It doesnt matter if the kids are headed to public or private school, as long as you live in Lake Oswego or the photo was taken at a local school.
