Q & A Collections: Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year

I'll begin posting new questions and answers in late August, and during the summer will be sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past four years. You can see all those collections from the first three years here.

Today's theme - the fourth one in this summer series - is on The Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year.

Previous updated thematic collections are:
