7 Tips to Spring Clean Your Child’s School Routine

Spring is here! It’s the season of renewal, which makes it the perfect time to get organized! After a long winter, it is great to open the windows and let a fresh breeze in!

Spring is the season for cleaning the house, decluttering, and feeling refreshed. Families can apply the same approach to school habits as well.

Spring Cleaning for School Success

In Spring, school motivation can begin to drift. Warm weather means students want to spend more time outside and often put homework and assignments on the backburner. Spring cleaning bookbags, notebooks and pencil cases can help keep students focused on school!

Start with getting organized! Strong organizational skills have a long-lasting impact on a child’s ability to succeed throughout their academic career. Our School Spring Cleaning Checklist helps students get back on track and stay focused for the rest of the year! 

This checklist is the perfect resource to end the current year strong—especially important for teens heading to college or university!

Spring Cleaning School Checklist

Check out these seven tips to spring clean your child’s school habits:

  1. Audit your daily routine. Take a look at your family’s morning routine and make adjustments for the season. Remember, routines are essential for consistency and success, so be sure to make the most of them!
  2. Give backpacks and lunch bags a thorough cleaning. Children’s school bags are notorious for bringing home forgotten items and unidentifiable messes. Sort through them and refresh them with a good seasonal cleaning.
  3. Organize study and homework spaces. Having less clutter in your surroundings helps remove clutter from your mind! Tidy up workspaces to give the mind a reset. Plus, it’s a great way to see if any supplies need replenishing before the end of the year.
  4. Incorporate springtime learning activities. Use the nicer weather to turn learning into a fun, hands-on activity for boosted engagement. It also moves the body—an active body equals an active mind!
  5. Check-in on mental health. Mental Health plays a vital role in learning, affecting students’ ability to be present and learn. Staying resilient will ensure adaptability as end-of-the-year responsibilities get added to their plates.
  6. Map out remaining assignments and due dates. Reduce end-of-year school stress, such as achieving academic goals and earning good final grades.
  7. Sign up for Summer Learning. Keep the spring momentum going strong with a summer learning program right through the summer. Catch up for next year, review key subjects and start next year ahead with a summer learning program.
