We all know how the first day of school can mount up butterflies in your stomach. Could one actually get sick just by thinking about it? Hopefully not. But here at Glenbrook Hyundai, we want you to be as well equipped as possible, so here are some back to school tips for your Happy Car Store family.
1. Go mobile with your lists.
Whether you are a student in the classroom or a stay-at-home or working parent, making a list is key to your productivity. While many people still keep a hand-written list handy, we suggest creating it on your phone. If you have an iPhone, there is an existing Notes application on all Apple devices you can use to create it. The Reminders application also works very well as you can pace yourself by setting reminders at specific times to let you know when you must do a task and complete it. Examples of list items would be complete Math assignment, pack lunch, etc.
2. Utilize a calendar.
Wall calendars and desktop calendars may somewhat be going out of style, but the concept is far from extinction. Today’s phones conveniently have calendar applications on them in which you can load events and destinations into them to keep you in line day-to-day. Whether you have to pick up your child at school or your child has a project due or a football game, you will stay on schedule if you are utilizing an e-calendar via phone or email.
3. Update your List of Contacts
A new school year brings new teachers, coaches, students, parents, and friends. It’s important to keep your list of phone numbers and email addresses up-to-date. For important contacts, such as teachers and coaches, make sure you have them in your favorites or on speed-dial, so they are easy to find.
We hope the start of the school year starts off very organized for you. Below are the first days of school for schools in Indiana. Best wishes to all teachers and students from Glenbrook Hyundai in Fort Wayne, IN!
