Back to (New) School (continued)

6. Stock up on supplies.
On or before the first day of school, make sure you or your child finds out what school supplies and materials are required. Most schools should provide a handy list for the younger grades, but if not, take it upon yourself to ask and then purchase them as soon as possible. Middle and high school students should be sure to take along a notebook and pen or pencil on the first day.

7. Prepare the night before.
To avoid the morning rush, organize what you can the night before. Lay out clothes,make a lunch and assemble any supplies your child may need. Be sure to get everyone up extra early so you'll have plenty of time to calmly get ready and get out the door on time.

8. Get a healthy start.
Encourage your child to eat a good breakfast and pack a healthy snack to help her get through the day.

9. Accompany your little one.
Even if your elementary-school child will be riding the bus regularly or walking to school, you may want to take him yourself on the first day,particularly if he seems nervous.

10. Introduce yourselves.
Young children are often shy with a new teacher. If you take your child to school on the first day, you might want to go into the classroom and introduce your child to the teacher. Let the teacher know about any special interests or challenges that your child has.

Good information. Enjoyable and fun reading. There is a small observation to give about funny t-shirts.
