Back To School

Prepping for Back to School

  • Put together an emergency kit for your teen’s locker. Include band-aids, mints, deodorant, chapstick, lint roller, hand sanitizer and Kleenex.
  • Organize clothes for the week in your closet to help keep your morning on schedule.
  • Post a daily routine to help younger children stay on schedule and know what to expect in their day.
  • Clear a pantry shelf and set up a self-serve station with snacks organized for children to grab for their lunches or after school.
  • Designate a dedicated homework space in your home.
  • Prepare for the school day the night before to eliminate running late and hectic mornings.
  • Create a family wall calendar.
  • Eat a good breakfast.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Ease first day butterflies by talking about all the things your children like about school.
  • Create a school photo album to help share memories with your children and keep a positive focus on school.
