Here is a general back to school checklist for parents of primary school children:
School supplies: pens, pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, backpacks, lunch boxes, etc.
Clothing: check for proper fit, check for any damages, and stock up on any essentials such as underwear and socks.
- Label all their uniform with the Stamptastic Personalised Name Stamps and Stamptastic Ink Padbecause secondary school uniform is expensive!
- Health: schedule check-ups, eye exams, and dental cleanings if needed.
- School calendar: note important dates such as holidays, open house, and parent-teacher conferences.
- Homework and study area: establish a dedicated space for homework and studying, and set clear expectations for daily routines.
- School policies: review the school's policies on dress code, homework, and behavior expectations.
- Transportation: arrange for carpools or bus transportation, if needed.
- Communication: make sure contact information is updated with the school, and discuss any concerns or questions with the teacher.
- Get involved: consider volunteering at the school or joining the PTA (don't forget to mention the super easy Stamptastic PTA Fundraising Programme) to stay informed and involved in your child's education.
Remember that every school and every child is unique, so this checklist should be adjusted as needed for your individual situation.
