From Routines to Study Spaces: Navigating the Back-to-School Season as a Parent

As the new school year approaches, it’s helpful to set the stage for a smooth transition. Here are a few helpful tips:

  1. Gradually adjust daily routines by scheduling earlier bedtimes and wake-up times.
  2. Help your student prepare for new courses by providing time and resources to get to know the material before the first day of school.
  3. Develop a study plan for study hours and maybe even establish a fun study space to minimize distractions.
  4. Encourage your high schoolers to embrace opportunities for growth. Samantha Johnson, School Leader of Collegiate Baton Rouge, says, “Every year is a fresh start. There will be setbacks and challenges. Use those as an opportunity to reflect and grow. Lean into the strong relationships within and outside the school. And never give up!”

Your support is vital in empowering teens to thrive in their educational journey. Let’s make this school year one for the books!
