10 Back to School Tips: for K-12 Students, Parents and College Students
It doesn’t matter if you are a first grader, teenager or adult, heading out of summer break and into the “back-to-school” season is a big adjustment at any age. For some, summer is a time of freedom, travel and play, a time for retreat and rest and for others it may be a time to be on less of a schedule where family can spend more time together. Some people get busier in the summer and some reach a point of boredom that can make them dream of routine days in the school year. Whatever your situation is, below are 10 tips to help you adjust out of the summer break and into the new school year.
It’s important that we honor the many seasons of life. It’s never really just the end of summer because it may also mark the end of someone’s last year of elementary school or the last year of student-teaching before graduate school. Acknowledging the time that has passed helps us to move forward into our next season. If this list feels overwhelming, start wherever you can and discover what works best for you.
