Summer is drawing to a close and school is starting for many.  I asked some of my friends who are teachers what they would suggest to students, or those with students in the family, to help those going back to school to help prepare for success.  Here are the some suggestions to start the school year on the right foot.

Be prepared.  

There’s nothing quite like the terror of coming home after dropping off the kids at school and seeing one of their backpacks on the table!  With a personalized notepad they will be sure to never lose or forget it, as they will be too busy showing it off to all their friends!  A backpack with a personalized carabiner or tag will be hard to lose track of.

Be original.  

Get your student something that will make them stand out from the crowd.  They will be the talk of the class with a personalized wood cell phone case or a monogramed wallet.  With a lot of generic items out there, personalized gear your student can show off will make them memorable to both their peers and to the teachers.

Be organized.  

In a day and age where there are hundreds of plans pulling your family every which way, an organizer is a perfect way to keep all of those plans in line.  There are family apps and calendars, like Google Calendar, which can help the individual and family keep track of plans.  There are also countless other paper and digital planners and organizers to help your student, as well as the rest of the family, stay organized.

We would love to hear back from you!  Tell us about the items that have helped make previous year's successful!  What tips or tricks did you or your student use to help them to have a successful year?
