August is National Back to School Month - By Commissioner Dennis Deer


-Didaskaleinophobia, an acute fear of going to school, affects approximately 2.4 percent of children.

-Parents in 16th-century Denmark started sending their kids to school with an apple because teachers weren’t making enough money to buy food.

-On average, families spend $700 on school supplies every year — which means the school supply industry makes approximately $80 billion annually from these sales.

-Including college, approximately 78 million students go back to school every fall.

-Pencils can also be used in zero gravity, upside down, or even underwater!

-Before pencil erasers were invented, a common way to get rid of pencil markings was with a rolled-up piece of white bread!

-If your pencil sharpener gets dull, you can wrap your pencil in aluminum foil and it will sharpen the blades for you.

-Let's get our children prepared for a successful school year!
