The Family Corner - preparing for school

The start of school is an exciting time, but it can also cause anxiety for some youngsters. Follow these simple tips to make the transition from summer to school a little easier.
Get enough sleep: Remember, elementary age children typically need 9 - 11 hours of sleep each night.

Eat a good breakfast: Provide fuel for an active mind.

Get moving: A little exercise prior to school goes a long way. Walking to school or arriving 10 minutes early for playground time will prepare your child for the day.
