President Obama's back-to-school message

On Tuesday, a White House live stream will broadcast the President's message to students on this web site. It appears that an advance copy of the message will be available on Monday.

The White House

On Tuesday, September 8 — the first day of school for many students — the President will talk directly to students across the country on the importance of taking responsibility for their education, challenging them to set goals and do everything they can to succeed.

We want to make sure that as many schools and classrooms nationwide can participate in this special opportunity, so we are making the President’s address and all the information that comes with it available as widely as possible.

Whether you are a teacher, a school board member, or a member of the media, find information to help you watch and be engaged with the President in welcoming our students back to school.

When: Tuesday, September 8th, at 11:00 AM (CST)
