Getting Ready For Back To School Checklist

Until today I thought I was ready for back to school. I’ve purchased supplies (well everything except the latex-free pencils that I can’t find anywhere…), organized closets and planned the first week of lunches. Then I got an email and now I’m scrambling before Open House this evening.

My friend forwarded an email from, suggesting a one page bio of my child to give her teacher. Isn’t that a fabulous idea?!

A child’s bio is a great way to give the teacher a snapshot of my Princess, her strengths and weaknesses, and the best ways to engage her.

It also shows the teacher we are engaged parents and her education will be a shared effort, not a one-sided venture.

Here is the template I am using for her Back-To-School Snapshot/Bio. As an extra touch I plan to print it on color paper.

Hopefully you’ll get this more than a few hours before meeting your child’s teacher, :-).
