Monthly Letter From the Editor

Dear Germs,jordan_ed_l

This month, Germ is celebrating the excitement and newness of going back to school. Between buying new school supplies, new school clothes, and getting ready to see your friends eight hours a day, five days a week, there are few things not to like about going back to school. As such, September’s theme is “School Days,” and we here at Germ HQ have a bunch of great stuff lined up for you! Between tips on how to make friends at a new school, book reviews, and stories from around the world to keep you current and able to wow your teachers, going back to school has never been so fun. (And for those of you who don’t like school and find it difficult to bear, I swear upon my eternal soul that it gets better. Plus, if nothing else, enduring it just makes summer all the more enjoyable).

Till next time!
