Getting kids excited about going back to school can help alleviate any anxieties and make the transition smoother. Preparing your home for back to school can create a supportive and organized environment for your child’s learning and daily routines

Here are some ideas to help spark excitement and get the house ready for the new school season:


But first, let me tell you about a Scottsdale community program that helps students from low income families prepare for school. 

Did you know that there are over 6,500 low-income students in the Scottsdale Unified School District?  

The Scottsdale Community Partners organization’s goal is to provide all of these kids with new backpacks, school supplies, clothing and sports gear.

Response Crew will be a prude sponsor of this program. 

  1. Back-to-School Shopping: Take your child shopping for new school supplies, backpacks, and clothes. Involving them in selecting their supplies can create a sense of ownership and anticipation for the upcoming school year.
  2. Plan Special Activities: Plan some special activities or outings related to school. For example, visit a bookstore and let your child pick out a book they are interested in or plan a fun trip to a museum or science center to get them excited about learning.
  3. Visit the School: If possible, visit the school before it starts. Walk around the campus, locate the classrooms, and let your child become familiar with the environment. This can help ease any concerns and create a sense of comfort
  4. Get Involved in Back-to-School Events: Attend any back-to-school events or orientations organized by the school. These events often offer opportunities for children to engage in fun activities, meet teachers, and explore the school facilities.
  5. Create a Dedicated Study Area: Set up a designated study area where your child can focus on homework and studying. This area should be well-lit, quiet, and free from distractions. Equip it with essential supplies such as a desk, comfortable chair, adequate lighting, and organizational tools like shelves or drawers for books and stationery.
  6. Organize School Supplies: Designate a specific area in your home to store school supplies. This can be a drawer, shelf, or a designated backpack station. Organize supplies like pens, pencils, notebooks, and calculators, making them easily accessible for your child when needed.
  7. Set up a Calendar or Planner: Use a wall calendar, whiteboard, or a digital planner to keep track of important school dates, extracurricular activities, and deadlines. Involve your child in updating the calendar regularly to foster a sense of responsibility and help them manage their time effectively.
  8. Establish a Morning Routine: Develop a morning routine that allows your child to get ready for school efficiently. Set clear expectations regarding wake-up times, breakfast, dressing, and packing their backpacks. Encourage your child to lay out their clothes and pack their bags the night before to minimize morning rush and stress.
