As summer winds down, the school year is right around the corner. With that of course comes back to school shopping for supplies and new clothes as well as the anxiety of starting a new school year. Here are some tips to pass along to your student to help them excel in the classroom.
- Eat breakfast. It’s true, when you’ve eaten a good breakfast you are more alert and perform better in class.
- Put the phone down and sleep. Teens need at least 8.5 hours of sleep to feel rested.
- Use your study hall. Doing more work during the school day while not in class can reduce the work you will have to do at home. You’ll be more focused, too.
- Make friends. Join school clubs or teams and get to know people.
I’ll end with our favorite tip to give students before the school year. “When you know better, you do better.” This quote is by Maya Angelou. It’s true, as we continue to learn, we continue to improve. Education doesn’t stop after high school or even college, it continues into the workforce and into your life. At GreenHomes we are constantly in the classroom learning more about homes and how they work. We are keeping up with the latest building codes, tools, products, and services so that we can do better.
We continue to learn and for good reason, the more we know the better we can serve you.
