Back to School!
Most people have mixed feelings about going back to school. Some may experience a little bit of dread, some may be very excited, and some may be a little bit of both!
Our theme this school year is "Watch Us Grow." We will be having a lot of fun this school year and growing together!
Here are some tips to help back to school go as smoothly as possible:
1. Practice Your Routine
A few days before school starts, get up at the time you will need to get up in order to be on time for school. Practice your routine of getting dressed, eating breakfast, and go through your morning rituals. Switching from a summer schedule to a school schedule can be stressful for everyone involved, so easing into the routine will make the transition easier.
2. Talk About School
Talk about the good things that are coming, Focus on the positives of school. Talk about fun times you had when you were in their grade, or ask them what they are excited to learn. School can be fun, and your positivity may help ease any anxiety your child may have about the upcoming school year.
3. TOOL UP!
Make back to school shopping fun! Go and pick up school supplies together, and make it a family outing. And don't forget, you can always contact me if you need help gathering school supplies for your student.
We are so excited to see our students come back for this school year. GO LIONS!
