A CHECKLIST FOR A
By Holly Crawshaw
SUCCESSFUL SCHOOL YEAR
It may be hard to believe, but summer is almost over! Maybe that makes you want to burst into tears, or maybe it makes you want to throw a huge party! Either way, Below is a checklist to help make the transition into the new school year go as smoothly as possible:
1. ESTABLISH A SCHEDULE BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
