Hey girls! I know it’s still July, but I’m already preparing for one of my favorite times of year. I bet you’ve seen it in the stores and on TV ads already…back-to-school season is coming up! You may still be in the middle of your summer vacation, but it’s never too early to start planning for school. Don’t groan! Back-to-school planning can be fun. Sure, it’s a little nerve-wracking to think about, but if you start thinking ahead now, you’ll be completely ready by the time September comes around!
If you’re going to a new school next year—whether it’s in a new district or just a new building—it might be a good idea to get used to your new surroundings. Do some exploring! Take your schedule and figure out where all your classrooms will be located, so on the first day of school you’re not lost and trying to figure out which way to go! Find all the essential spots you’ll need to know: the cafeteria, gym, the locker rooms, Nurse’s Office, and even pick out which places might make great hang out spots for down time!
And of course, there is always back-to-school shopping! Grab your parent or some friends and find yourself a new backpack, lunchbox, notebooks, pencils…whatever will make you feel confident and excited for going back-to-school! Who knows, maybe your parents will be so happy to see you planning so early that they’ll treat you to something fun! As it continues to get closer to back-to-school season, I’ll be posting more tips on ways you can prepare and get organized. Feel free to share any hints you might have with me!
