How to start the school year right!



    How to start the school year right, and help your child succeed...


    Give your child a place to study.  Homework should be done at the same time each evening.

    Have school supplies available.  Pencils and notebook paper will facilitate homework.

    Establish routines.  Routines will help your child get enough sleep, eat regular, nourishing meals, and receive sufficient exercise. 

    Read, read, read!  The more children read, the better their reading skills become. Listen to your child read, and read to your child on a regular basis.  Enjoy a family read-aloud.

    Promote organization.  Help your child use his/her agenda, calendars and backpack.  Have all materials in the backpack each evening, ready for the next day.
