As proud parents often do, you might grab for your digital camera as you remind your little one to grab the backpack that sat unused for the last three months.
And if you do, we'd love for you to share your shots with Dearborn Patch.
Whether today is your child's first day of kindergarten, middle school or high school in Deaborn Public Schools, or if they started last week at or , it's an exciting day worth remembering.
Or maybe today is the first time your child is walking to school on his or her own, or the first year your child gets to drive to to kick off a new school year.
There will be lots of smiles (along with some rubbing of the sleepy or teary eyes) this morning and we want to share them with the community.
You can upload photos directly to Dearborn Patch by using the link above.
If you take some photos with your phone, you also can text them to 734-386-6490.
However you submit your photos, please remember to let us know who is in each shot, along with any other pertinent info.
Here's to a great start of the 2012-13 school year!
