Making Back-To-School Work For Your Family

By now, most Hamilton County kids are back in school. That’s certainly good news for the parents! As kids get used to new classes and teachers, it is important for families to work together to make back-to-school a success. Here are some ways to accomplish that goal.

Start a Car Pool

If you only had to drop off and pick up your kids at the same time every day, then it would be easy to manage. But when you add in all the after-school sports, band, clubs and theater things start to get complicated. That is why whenever possible you should get car pool help from fellow parents. Find out who your kid is friends with for those activities and then call up the parents to see how you can help each other. Even if car pools don’t become a regular thing, it still will help to have a “backup plan” just in case you’re running late for a pickup.

Meet the Teachers

The official meeting of the teachers happens on parent teacher night but you don’t have to wait that long. There is nothing wrong with introducing yourself to all of your kid’s teachers early on. Find out if they’re open to communicating through email. This doesn’t mean you should be emailing them at all hours and on the weekend, but it will be nice to establish that communication line if challenges arise that only they can address.

Plan as Much the Night Before

As much planning as you can do for the school day on the night before, the better off you’ll be in the morning. You can get a lot of the lunch ready and set out the items for breakfast so everyone knows what is on the “menu.” Picking out and/or washing outfits for the school day the night before is also going to be a huge time saver.

Keep Clutter Away

When school starts, clutter in the house has a way of piling up. You can minimize that by giving every member in the family their own “bin” by the door. This is where shoes, hats, gloves and backpacks can be dropped. Around the rest of the house, you want to get rid of all the unwanted outfits, toys, books and sporting equipment that is no longer being used. Junk King Chattanooga can help with all that clutter removal. Once that stuff is gone, you’ll have a lot more room is closets and that can make a big difference. Let a Junk King Chattanooga clutter removal session help your family get into the back-to-school routine.
