Where did the summer go? The first day of school is just around the corner. The beginning of the school year can be overwhelming. With a little preparation, you and your family will be ready to begin the new academic year. No one can be fully prepared for the year ahead, but these tips might make it a little easier:
Obtain school information
Most schools websites provide information about policies, teacher links, homework and grading, lunch menus and the year’s calendar. If not, use the old-fashioned method and call. School personnel report to work weeks before classes start, so be proactive.
Check-Ups and Immunizations
Review your child’s immunization record to ensure it is up-to-date. It’s also a great time to have your child’s physical, eye and dental exams completed before school starts. Remember, students will need a sports physical or signed release form to participate in sport activities. Visit Tricare for more information.
The cost of clothes, shoes and supplies doesn’t have to bust your budget. Most school websites have supply lists posted. Before going shopping, take a complete assessment of what you have and what you really need. During the month of August, some states offer a “sales tax holiday,” which means that certain products will not be taxed during a set period of time. Get the most “bang” for your buck; check to see if your state participates in sales tax holidays.
Get back into a routine
Two to three weeks before classes start, have your child go to bed earlier and get up earlier. Increase the time increments every few days and your child will be less resistant to the early morning wake-up calls for school. In addition, have your child lay out clothing the night before. It teaches organization and saves time.
Establishing a homework routine and providing a quiet, well-lit place to complete assignments is important for children. Tutor.com can help too, with tutoring sessions available to children in grades 1-12.
Safety and Bullying
Create a plan in case of an emergency. Practice a safety word or code with younger children. Talk to your child about bullying and how to stay safe at school.
Have a great school year!
