It’s Back To School Time!

KindergartenIt’s hard to imagine that summer is almost over and the school year is about to begin for Whatcom County School Districts, but alas the time is here!

Even though school might not be starting until next week or the week after for some districts in Whatcom County it’s still a great time to start getting ready. A good night’s sleep is more important that ever for your young scholars. It’s a good idea to start getting used to the school sleep schedule now so they are fully rested and awake when they start their first day of class. Some suggestions for getting a good night’s sleep are to set a scheduled bed time , set clothes out the night before and set the backed pack back by the door. By making the most of your evenings before bed time and organizing your things for your morning getting ready will take less time and allow for more sleep.

It you opt to start changing your sleeping plan early take full advantage of the getting up early and plan some fun end of summer day trips with your family before school starts. Take a trip to the birch bay water slides, walk the beaches of Semiahmoo Spit or go swimming at Lake Whatcom, as school is just around the corner!

Remember, if you are search for homes or our site there is a quick and easy “Schools” button located on every listing detail page to help you learn more about the schools and school districts in a home’s area. Visit www.JohnsonTeamRealEstate.com to learn more!
