Back to School

back to school

Whether your new school year has already begun or soon will, today’s FACS Soundtrack selection is appropriate.  You may recognize the song Welcome Back sung by John Sebastian as the theme to the sitcom Welcome Back Kotter

Wouldn’t it be fun to greet you students with this song when they come to class on the first day of school?  It just might help to get things off on an unexpected and positive note.  It would also give you and opportunity to gauge your students’ reaction to the introduction of music as part of your classroom routine. 

You’ll find other ideas for getting your school year started out right on our Great Start Back to School Ideas board on Pinterest.  http://pinterest.com/FreshFACS/

Those were the days!

Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about.
Well the names have all changed since you hung around.
But those dreams have remained and they’ve turned around.
Who’d have thought they’d lead ya,
(Who’d have thought they’d lead ya,)
Back here where we need ya?
(Back here where we need ya?)
Yeah, we tease him a lot ’cause we got him on the spot.
Welcome back, (welcome back, welcome back, welcome back),
(Welcome back, welcome back), welcome back.

We always could spot a friend, welcome back.
And I smile when I think how you must have been.
And I know what a scene you were learning in.
Was there somethin’ that made you come back again?
And what could ever lead ya.
(what could ever lead ya,)
Back here where we need ya?
(Back here where we need ya?)
Yeah, we tease him a lot ’cause we got him on the spot.
Welcome back, (welcome back, welcome back, welcome back),
(Welcome back, welcome back).

Welcome back, (welcome back, welcome back, welcome back),

Yeah, we tease him a lot, (welcome back, welcome back),

Have a wonderful weekend and a great school year!
