Tips For A Successful School-Day

  • Starting Off Positive: Send your child to school with a smile, a hug and a positive word every day
  • A Well Rested Child: Children learn when they have had the recommended ten to twelve hours of sleep.
  • A Nutritious Meal: Provide wholesome, well-balanced nutritious foods; avoid junk foods.
  • Dress for the Weather: Listening to or reviewing your local weather forecast will assure choosing the appropriate clothing for your child.
  • A Healthy Reminder: Know when to keep your child home. The Healthy Reminder sheet can be posted to your cupboard or refrigerator. Prevention is the key to keeping colds and the flu from spreading to other children and teachers. If you have any questions call your child's Head Start Center, before sending your child to school.
  • Sending Items to School: There are often several of the same items in the families, labeling saves time, effort and misunderstanding among parents. Label all items clearly.
