22 Aug Back to School Supplies with School Tools Donations
Summer is coming to a close and August rings in the beginning of the school year for many children and families. It is time to shift our schedules to the upcoming school year and time commitments. Here at Spivey Insurance Group we are here to help you and your family get back into the transition of things of this upcoming school year. Here are a few ways to get your household off to a great start.
Shopping for school supplies is one of the first steps to make sure you student is prepared. Teachers often send home a list of supplies during the first week of class. However, your student will still need to have some essentials on the first day. Here is a great list of supplies to send with your student on the first day..
• Lined Paper
• Index Cards
Another step to prepare your student is to get to know the new teachers. Many schools have open houses, curriculum nights, and meet and greet nights for the the parents to get to better know the teachers. This gets you and your student excited with a new classroom and teacher. Send an introductory email that includes how you can help during the school year. Setting a bedtime and wake up routine weeks prior to school starting is a way to better transition for the school year. Establish bedtimes and wake-up time about a week or two in advance for the first day of school. This will help your student be on the right sleeping schedule.
Here at Spivey Insurance Group we want to know how you and your family prepare for the new school year. While you are out shopping for school supplies make sure you pick up a few extra supplies to donate to our local public school. Union County Public Schools has partnered with Channel 9 WSOC by participating in this year’s School Tools Donation. We are also taking donations at our office. Follow these important steps with you and your student to make sure the school year starts off a success.
