Tips for Starting a New School Year

   Here are some helpful educational tips to get ready for a new    

   school year:

  1) Re-establish bedtime and mealtime routines.  During the  

  summer months bedtime and mealtime routines can change. 

  Talk with your child about the difference in bedtime during

  summer months vs. school months.  Reading stories before

  bedtime is a great way to prepare for a good night's rest!

  2) There will be many materials coming home in the first few

  days of school.  Review materials as they come home with

  your child and return any necessary paperwork within a few

  days.  This avoids the possibility of missing an item that needs

  to be returned . . . there's always a new piece of information

  coming home in the first few days of school.

  3) Mark your calendars with important events.  There are

  many activities that take place throughout the school year. 

  Take advantage of our down-loadable school calendar. 

  4) Pack backpacks the night before and leave in the same

  location each night.  If you child brings a lunch to school, pack  

  it the night before.  Established routines will help school   

  mornings run smoother.

  5) Establish a homework routine.  Having a designated time

  and place to work on homework assignments will make for a

  smooth evening.  Discuss with your child and make them a

  part of the decision-making process.

     Preparation and Routine is the key to unlocking the start of  

     a Successful New School Year . . . Ready - Set - Go!
