Getting into school mode for back-to-school

Ready or not, it’s mid-August and it’s time to begin getting your child’s mind re-engaged and back into school mode. Preview your child’s upcoming fall schedule to ensure he understands his various time commitments and responsibilities. Think through his class schedule with him, and make a trip to Staples to choose the supplies he’ll need for his classes. If he hasn’t finished his summer reading, help him make a plan to get it done. And Engaging Minds can help, too: Work on strenghtening some specific skills like writing or study skills by enrolling him in one of our Back-to-School Workshops. Use these next few weeks effectively, and your child will head back to school well-prepared and with confidence.
