I'm not sure how it's possible, but another summer is almost over. The weather doesn't exactly match the school calendar, does it? Well, we can't stop that first day of school from getting here, but we want to help you be prepared. Jason Woebkenberg is the Chief Communications Officer with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation, so we took our list of questions to him.

Of course, we have to know when students go back to class. The EVSC is once again utilizing the staggered date start, according to the student's last name.

Relive 1980s Elementary School Gym Class

If you are a Generation X or Millenial like me, you likely have some strong memories of gym class. Either you loved it or hated it. I made some fun memories and built character and muscle, but I'm really glad I never have to go back and face some of these things again! And I know my teachers did their best to make gym enjoyable and teach us life skills. They succeeded - this is all in good fun. And, hopefully, future generations will get to thoroughly enjoy some of these as much as I did!
