The start of the new school year is now just days away. It likely seems more like hours away to the many Miles City youngsters who will soon be filling the classrooms. And while the school aged kids are mentally preparing themselves to get back into the educational system groove, parents are trying to remember, schedule and attend to all the things necessary to make going back to school successful and less stressful.
Following is a list to help parents make sure that they have everything handled for this traditionally demanding annual transition. Steadman’s does not carry everything necessary to get a child ready to go back to school, but we do have a few of the items.
