Back to school resources ALREADY?

Time goes by fast! I always like to be prepared and organized! We have to start thinking about school clothing, schedules, shoes, and those school supply lists! I found an advertisement for a product to use online to keep back-to-school lists efficiently managed, shared with retailers and parents. I do not know about the product, not getting any reimbursement from them to promote it; I think if it can help great! Check it out to see if it would help your district.

TeacherLists is the free, ADA compliant, easy-to-use online solution that helps thousands of districts and schools efficiently manage and share back-to-school supply lists with parents. With direct links to national online retailers like Target, Walmart, Amazon, and more, TeacherLists makes shopping for supplies contact-free and easier than ever.

One of my quotes is: “Education is something we do with children, not to them.” During my career, I have felt strongly about this approach and in helping to build student leadership. A label or title does not define leadership. Leadership is stepping in and up to make a change, difference or offer support. This program is an opportunity to provide students in grades 6-12 with a platform to work on leadership skills. Check it out to see if it is a good fit for what you would like to do in your school or district. We need leaders, communities working together for positive changes and connections, places where youth know they are making a difference and are heard.

Lots of planning goes on before schools are back in session. Would you please share any tips, ideas, or approaches you are utilizing this year? Leaders have so much on their plates. If they can see some resources to help them out, it would be great! Thank you for being the solution daily!
