PHOTOS: Back-to-School Day!

It's school time again and we want to hear, and see, your first-day-of-school stories, past and present.

The first day of school is filled with possibilities, for learning new things, meeting new friends and teachers and maybe even navigating your way around the unfamiliar halls and walkways of a new school.

Maybe you are a parent sending your kid off to school for the first time, or you have first day of school traditions you want to share with us?

Maybe you are a teacher, who wants to share your first day ever of teaching with us, or just a memorable one.

Even though you are now an adult, maybe you remember your first day of school from more than 20 years ago?

We want to hear and see your first day of school stories — past and present.

Add your first-day-of-school photos to our photo gallery and share your stories in the comments.

We will randomly pick a winner from all of the photos and comments on Friday, and send that person some Patch prizes.
