5 Tips for School Success STAY ORGANIZED

START THE DAY RIGHT

KEEP CONNECTED

ESTABLISH GOOD HOMEWORK HABITS

Make mornings easier by stocking baskets, one for each family member, with those items you always seem to be scrambling for in the morning rush. That way, hats, umbrellas and other accessories are all right there waiting for you when you need them.

Even in today’s electronic world, keeping a family calendar of events on paper or maybe on an app is a great way to keep everyone on the same page. Make notes of sports, homework assignments and other activities to make sure everyone stays in the loop.

GET ENOUGH SLEEP

Getting the recommended amount of sleep each night can help boost kids’ energy and concentration. Encourage reading before bed instead of something like TV that’s stimulating and can inhibit them from falling asleep.

By eating a nutritious breakfast, students’ attendance and overall academic achievement drastically improves. Keep things simple with foods like smoothies, peanut butter toast and low-sugar cereals. Breakfasts including protein will keep them filled and attentive until lunchtime.

Make sure you have a permanent workspace away from distractions, and set aside ample time each night for completing assignments.
