Back to School Checklist Waynesville NCIt is almost time to embark on a new school year for children and parents in Waynesville and throughout Haywood County, NC. Students throughout the area are preparing for their next first day of school by squeezing in the last few moments of summer bliss, while parents may be counting down the days and minutes before they can finally send their children back to their teachers for at least a few hours every day.

The last few days and weeks of summer are important for parents and children to prepare for their upcoming lessons. At Haywood Christian Academy, we are passionate about making sure parents realize how integral their role is in their child’s education.

Back to School Checklist Waynesville NC

We have provided this back-to-school checklist for parents and children to make the most of the next school year:

  • Pray Together: Pray for the upcoming school year.
  • Restore Bedtime: In the weeks leading up to the first day of school, make sure your children begin returning to their regular bedtimes and routines.
  • Spend Time Together: Go hiking, go to the park, go do a few more fun things together as a family.
  • Meet Teachers: Attend back-to-school bashes or open houses to meet your child’s new teachers and get to know their classroom expectations.
  • Examine Materials: Your teachers likely sent new materials and you have purchased new books. Look over them with your child.
  • Summer Work: If your child has summer homework, make sure it is completed before the last night of summer.
  • School Shopping: Spread school shopping out over a few weeks to make it less stressful.
  • Set Goals: Set educational goals for the upcoming school year.
  • Pray Again: You cannot pray together too often.
