The Smiling Faces of 'Back to School' in Oak Forest

Believe it or not, plenty of Oak Forest kiddos are happy to head back to school. The proof is in the pictures!

Ah, the first day of school—when the pencils are sharp, the folders are crisp, and the kids are smiling.

Wait a second. SMILING? Children? Going to school?

Yep, you read right. We even have proof!

Maybe it's the excitement over choosing their new seat on the bus. Or sharing their sandwich with their best bud. Or meeting their new teacher for the first time. Or finally reaching that major junior high milestone. Heck, maybe they're even stoked to have their last, first day of high school ever.

Whatever the reason, these kids are stoked about school.

Was yours, too? Share your photos with Patch! Click the giant "Upload photos and video" button, select your favorite photo, and you're all set! OR email your child's photo, name, grade and school to lauren.traut@patch.com! We'd love to see them and show everyone out there that kids can be excited about learning—even if it's just for a day.

Need some inspiration?
