Guam - With students expected to go back to school this week, hundreds of last-minute shoppers were at the mall today to buy school supplies, and uniforms. Simon Sanchez High School sophomore Jason Soram says he can't wait to go back to school after a couple of months of being on vacation. "I'm going to buy me a folder and uniform clothes," he said, adding that he's greatly looking forward to the new school year."
Manager of Paul's at the Micronesia Mall in Dededo C.J. Sachdev says the flow has been steady, but he has noticed that people are purchasing uniforms at the very last minute. Paul's sells uniforms for both public and private schools on island, with Sachdev saying their traffic has been quite steady. "A lot of people wait until the last weekend to purchase uniforms," he said.
Most private schools are expected to start tomorrow, while public school students go back to school on Tuesday.
