Time to get ready for back to school! Start to prep one week early!
Before School Starts – Be sure your child is in good physical and mental health. Schedule doctor and dental checkups early and get their sports physicals scheduled now.
Mark Your Calendar – Double-check and schedule back to school nights on your calendar.
Re-Establish mealtime and bedtime routines – Do this at least one week before school starts, especially a breakfast routine.
Schools Supplies – Make a big deal about letting your kids pick out their school supplies and make it fun! Also purchase them early.
Emphasize the Fun Stuff – If your child is hesitant about starting school, make sure to not dwell on the homework and books. Instead, emphasize the fun things such as art classes, field trips and meeting new friends.
