Where did the summer go? It is hard to believe, but local elementary to high school students and families will be heading back to school in the next few weeks. Students in Baltimore County Public Schools , Howard County Public Schools , and Fredrick County Public Schools will be heading back to school on August 24th. Faculty and students in the Baltimore City Public Schools , Montgomery County Public Schools , Carroll County Public Schools and Charles County Public Schools will be back in the classroom on August 31st.
The beginning of the school year is always a rough time for children and parents. Children are justifiably nervous about going to school, having a new teacher, new classroom and making new friends and parents are in turn nervous for their children! Parents should have a positive attitude about going back to school and share their enthusiasm about learning, reading and school with their children.
The first few weeks of transitioning from summer vacation to back to school week can be daunting for children and parents. The best advice for everyone in the family is to create a routine for the school year and stick with it as much as possible. The daily routine should be set for morning routines, after-school activities and play dates, homework and bedtime.

There are many things that need to be taken care of before the child goes back to school as well as during the first week of classes.
