We have had a lot of fun talking about all of the great outdoor activities that our communities have to offer over the summer, but now the transition to fall has begun and back to school time is here. This week marks the return to school for many students in Richmond and Williamsburg.
Homebuyers take a lot of different factors into consideration when choosing where to buy their next home. One of those is schools. That is why our communities are always located in top school districts. Near our Rutland community in Hanover County, for example, Atlee High School was named in the top 5 percent of public high schools nationwide by Newsweek magazine.
As you work on your back to school list, Scholastic has put together several articles on how to make this season the best ever! Here are a few of our favorites:
1. Create a comfortable workplace for your child to do their homework.
2. Send them off with new, healthier lunches and snacks.
3. Switch to school hours a week before the first day of class.
4. Organize supplies so that everything is ready to go.
You can see the complete list of articles here. We hope that these are helpful as the school year gets underway.
