The one things that really stood out for me when entering high school was getting my first locker. The locker was the first place you went in the morning and the last place you left at the end of classes. It stored all your gear and books and schedule. It was the place to meet your friends. It was where after school and weekend plans were made. The locker became a central place and was a status of growing-up.If you have a high school bound child, here are a few locker items to get them set for the year ahead:
