Elementary, My Dear Organizer

Soon my daughter will head off to Kindergarten and I’ll be the parent of a child in elementary school! How did that happen?

My mom friends who have been through this already have warned me about the onslaught of school-related paperwork and emails. This was high on my list so today I started to prepare. Here’s what I did:

  • Purged and recycled nearly all the paperwork from the file folder for my daughter’s pre-school…saving only the progress reports for posterity
  • Purged all the pre-school papers out of my Family Information binder
  • Scanned the pre-school class list to my computer so I can keep all the contact information (for future play dates) but get rid of the paper
  • Put the Kindergarten class roster and school calendar into my Family Information binder for quick reference
  • Added all the dates from the new school calendar to the Google calendar that I share with my husband (I LOVE Google calendar)
  • Set up a folder on my computer for my daughter’s new school and downloaded some important information from the school’s website

Hope I’m ready!
