hello

Kids all over the suburbs are headed back to school, and we invite you to celebrate by sharing your own back-to-school photos. Whether elementary, middle or high school, we'd like to see what you get in the coming days. Please email us a photo, along with details about who shot it and where and something about who is in the photo. Please send your picture in the largest size to photos@dailyherald.com and then keep an eye on the Daily Herald and www.dailyherald.com to see whether we shared it with the rest of our readership.

St. Isidore School in Bloomingdale has a long-standing tradition of ringing the original school bell from the original school building in 1920 on the first day of school each year. Kids, parents and grandparents gather outside the school, and our pastor, FR. Jim Murphy, principal, Mrs. Cyndi Collins, and selected students ring the bell to mark the beginning of the new school year. This year as pictured, Tommy, Carmi and Kennedy Lindgren (siblings) did the honor.
