    organizational strategies for school

    As the parent of a middle school or high school student, you've probably heard one or more of the following early-morning shout-outs:

    • "I can't find my homework."
    • "I don't have anything to wear."
    • "Can you sign my permission slip?"
    • "I need lunch money!"
    • "I missed the bus. Can you drive me?"

    After taking a deep breath, you rush to the rescue. But what if mornings and nights were well organized and calm, allowing your child to concentrate on what matters most: schoolwork. Well, it is possible. Try one or more of the following strategies so you and your student can begin and end the school day on a smooth note. Tell your child "I want you to . . .

    • keep a binder with dividers and pockets for each subject.
    • start homework as soon you get home.
    • turn off the television and other distractions while you're doing homework.
    • put completed homework in your backpack and have your backpack ready to grab as you go out the door.
    • bring me any school notes or forms by 8 p.m. each night.
    • keep a master calendar with all your assignments and activities.
    • set your alarm clock to wake up on time.
    • get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.
    • tell me if you're struggling in a subject or class.
    • set your clothes out the night before school."

    Depending on the level of chaos in your home, the previous suggestions may be easy or tough to implement. But as a parent, you can make a tangible difference in your child's education—starting at home. The more structure you provide, the more time your child can devote to academic success.
