A good laugh heals a lot of hurts.

Madeleine L’Engle

Back to school this year is going to look a little different. 2020 is a little different.  Whether your kids are going back to school traditionally, virtually or you are opting to homeschool for the first time like us – I wish you the best school year possible. 

Whatever decision you make about school this year, we could all use a laugh.  So here’s a giant list of BACK TO SCHOOL jokes and puns that I’ve been testing out on my kids.  I’m only including the ones that made my kids smile.  I hope 2021 goes back to normal. Maybe back to school will just be the normal stressful, not the pandemic stressful.
