Tips for a Great School Year

Like many of you, I'm getting ready to head back to the classroom. In a week, students will be back at school. Where did the summer go??? It seems like it disappeared in the blink of an eye.

It's rough changing back to school life after a summer of freedom. Here are some tips to help you have a great school year.

For most, summer is a time of staying up late, and as a result, we pick up some bad sleep habits. This is the time to start creating a new sleep habit by going to bed early. Setting bed time will help with this.

Calendar/Planner system
If it is not on my calendar, then it doesn't happen! It doesn't matter what kind of calendar or planner you decide to use, just stick with it. Writing down test dates, project due dates, etc. will help you stay on task and get things turned in on time.

Eat Right
We all pick up bad eating habits from time to time that we have to break. School and extra-curricular activities are going to take up a lot of your time. Eating a balanced meal at breakfast, lunch, and supper will help give you the energy to keep up with all the things you are doing.

Have Adequate Supplies
You have to go to school prepared with supplies like pens and paper. Grab a book to keep with you too.

I hope everyone has a great school year.
