Stay Organized Throughout the School Year
School can be hectic when you have multiple kids involved in a lot of after-school activities. Tracking school functions is also a daunting task trying to keep track of what is happening each week. I insist on a central area where we update the space with what is happening this week, coming up next week, the month overview, what is due (dance fees, order soccer shoes, school fundraiser) so forth.
The central area does not have to be limited to the calendar theme but also sends reminders to send papers back to school, return library books, and more.
It takes a little work over the weekend to get it organized for the week, but we have fewer issues remembering stuff with a central location area.
Here are some ideas on how you can build your own.
