Back-to-school season is upon us! By now, most of us have children who have returned to school. I think there may be a few of us who have kids with classes that don’t begin for another week or so. It is still time to be thinking about all the ways to prepare our kids for back-to-school time. If you school is anything like mine, then you don’t receive school lists, of things the kids or classroom needs, until after school starts. A bit hard to completely prepare that way.
To prepare my kids for back-to-school, I often try to have haircuts done, a bit of school clothes shopping done, and I try to get kids back into the habit or reading, if they lost touch over the Summer. I am not always successful at these things, but I try.
Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) and Disney have partnered to launch the Tools for Back to School initiative. I love what they are doing because this initiative features a pop-quiz style game, where supplies are donated to BGCA for every correct answer you score. This means that you can have a little fun playing a game online, and you will be able to help someone somewhere, with the supplies they need for their back-to-school time. So help someone out by playing the game for the Tools for Back to School initiative.
As if that’s not enough, BGCA has also partnered with JCPenney. For the month of August, you can join JCP Cares and roundup your purchase at the register, to benefit BGCA. You still have time to shop this month, and if you plan to shop at JCPenney, please “round up”, and feel good knowing that you can help someone out once again. Sometimes the smallest things that we can do, can mean the biggest things for someone else.
To help us out, the Boys and Girls Club of America offers different educational content and tip sheets for us parents to download. Check out the BGCA site and look under the “Get Ready” header.
