The first day of school is right around the corner for most students here in Lancaster. For some of us it’s hard to believe, while others have been counting the days until the kids are back at school. No matter which camp you fall into, we’ve got 4 tips to start the school year off on the right foot.
Get the kids to bed early. Summer is often a time of relaxed schedules, including bed time. To get kids ready to be back in the swing, get them going to bed early. A full night sleep can make a huge difference in their day!
Communicate with teachers and school. Make sure your kids school and teachers know anything unique they may need to about your child. Communicate to make sure your kids have the supplies they need to start the year off right!
Provide healthy meals. Getting the day started with a balanced, healthy breakfast can give your children the fuel they need to start their day on the right foot. It can sometimes be hard to control, but try to help kids make good, balanced lunch choices as well so they can maintain their energy through the school day.
Prepare a study area. These days, kids as young as kindergarten age have at least a small amount of homework to do in the evenings. Think about where your kids will spend their time learning at home. Try to provide even a small area where kids can work free of distractions and noise.
We hope these tips help your family the school year off to a great start!
