23 Aug How to Start the School Year off Right
It is that time of year again! It’s time to stuff book bags full of pencils and paper and send your kids off to school. Follow these tips to make sure your family and children have a great first day of school.
Gathering school supplies: This may be your least favorite part of preparing for back to school. But it is important for your children to learn how to take advantage of sales, follow a list of instructions, and stay organized. It is always a good idea to buy what you know you will need early, if you can. Whether this includes new clothes or supplies such as notebooks, pens, assignment books, folders, and more, you can get ahead of the game to avoid stress once school approaches.
Organization is key: Get organized for the busy school year by gathering important information your students will need for classes, get their physicals out of the way, and update their school emergency contact and health information for the coming year. Also, you can start to think of creative and healthy meals your kids will enjoy. This way they can continue to be nutritious even when at school.
New routine means adjustments: The school year brings about a busier schedule than your family is used to during the lazy summer days. Make sure you are prepared for the challenges ahead, and start early with the adjustment process. Open communication and positive thinking will help everyone’s transition be much smoother.
