The first of September, the year 2017 = 

September 1, 2017=Knowledge DAY

On the 1st of September all schoolchildren of our country go to school to study and know the world. The new school year begins. Long live our school! 
It is Knowledge Day today in Belarus! I congratulate all students and their parents on the new school year! I wish all boys and girls to fall in love with our school! May them do well at all the subjects and bring home top marks only. And last but not least, let them learn English to perfection!
Best regards,
Elena Kreslo

Homework: read the poem written by Robert Frost and answer the question: What knowledge helps us to learn the world more: casual knowledge or knowledge system? Try to translate the poem and compare with original translation into Russian.

Accidentally on Purpose 
(by Robert Frost)
The Universe is but the Thing of things,
The things but balls all going round in rings.
Some mighty huge, some mighty tiny,
All of them radiant and mighty shin
                 They mean to tell us all was rolling blind             
Till accidentally it hit on mind
In an albino monkey in the jungle,
And even then it had to grope and bungle,
Till Darwin came to earth upon a year
To show the evolution how to steer.
They mean to tell us, though, the Omnibus
Had no real purpose until it got to us.
Never believe it. At the very worst
It must have had the purpose from the first
To produce purpose as the fitter bred:
We were just purpose coming to a head.
Whose purpose was it, His or Hers or Its?
Let's leave that to the scientific wits.
Grant me intention, purpose and design -
That's near enough for me to the devine.
And yet with all this help of head and brain,
How happily instinctive we remain.
Our best guide upward farther to the light:
Passionate preference such as love at sight.
