The Best School Year!


1. Plan to volunteer at school. There are many opportunities with various time commitments. Research shows that students whose parents volunteer at school thrive.

2. Arrange a back to school special sleep over or celebration. And, arrange play dates throughout the year!

3. When scheduling extra-curricular activities have it based on quality, not quantity and on their interests! If finances are a concern, use free community resources like the library that have clubs (i.e. lego clubs) that meet regularly. Or, source out scholarships that pay for such programming.

4 Maintain open lines of communication with the school. Ask the teacher whether their preference would be email or using the school agenda.

5. Discuss what your after school routine is going to consist of touching on homework set up and completion, lunch bag emptying, snacks, dinner prep, and rules around media.
