Start Preparing Now for Back-to-School | Sandi Parkey Pink Zebra Independent Consultant
Yes, I said it. The start of a new school year is right around the corner. And whether you are a Pink Zebra consultant, a stay-at-home mom or work in a corporate setting, it’s time to start preparing now for the back-to-school season!
A Brand-new School Year
There’s just something about starting a brand-new year. A new chance to get it right. A new year of possibilities.
But in order to take full advantage of all a new school year has to offer, you need to make sure you are as prepared as possible as a family.
Put Those Bedtimes in Place
And I am not just talking about your children. I am talking about a bedtime for you, too!
During summer break, there has probably been a lot of inconsistency. Some late nights, some early mornings, some early nights and some late mornings. However, it’s time to get back into the swing of things, and that starts with a new bedtime and morning routines.
Don’t wait until the week school begins to start a new routine. Start it today so you will be more ready for the first few days of school!
Get Your Calendar Ready
Take the school calendar and add all the appropriate dates to your family’s calendar at home. From holidays to school breaks to test days, have everything in your personal calendar so you always know what is coming up and aren’t taken by surprise.
Create a Workspace
You need to have a homework station set up so that your children are able to concentrate on the tasks at hand to finish homework quickly and efficiently.
- Healthy snacks
- Natural sunlight
- No technology, unless necessary for the assignment
- Supplies like pens, pencils, paper, etc.
