(WENY) -- Here are some tips for you to get ready to go back to school!

  • Switching from a summer to a school schedule can be stressful to everyone in your house. Avoid first-day-of-school chaos by practicing your routine a few days in advance:

    • Set the alarm clock

    • Go through your morning rituals

    • Get in the car or to the bus stop on time.

    • Establishing a solid school routine will make the first day of school go much smoother.

  • Find your class supply list and start searching some deals to buy them. While keeping basic needs in mind, you could splurge on a cool notebook or pen.

  • Get your backpack organized.

  • If your school hosts an open house or tour, be sure to go. Getting familiar will help avoid a nervous stomach on the first day.

  • Find a special place at home and school to do your homework with limited distractions.

  • Make sure you get enough sleep.

  • Start your school day with a healthy breakfast. As they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
