With great anticipation, most teachers across the United States begin their preparation for the 2013-2014 back to school season. Is your school ready? Have you prepared how you're going to engage your students and make sure they know how to say NO to underage drinking this year? In Payson, Arizona, we have already completed the 4th week of school.
