Preparing for Back-To-School

Posted: Updated:

School is getting underway in schools across South Dakota and with a new school year comes some back-to-school jitters. Steffanie Liston-Holtrop stopped by the KSFY Morning News to share some tips to keep the kids calm and ready for a fun year.

#1 Make sure you are focusing on the fun the kids will have at school.

#2 Help the kids before school starts by reconnecting them with some of their classmates.

#3 Help your child feel comfortable at school by going for walks around the building during the summer and playing on the school's playground.

#4 Have your child connect with their new teacher. Have them write a note to the teacher and help them see their teacher as an ally.

#5 Refresh their memory of school rules and expectations.

#6 Always plan for success

#7 Make sure your child is getting into the habit of consistent sleep schedules before school starts.

Follow these tips for a happy and successful year!

And if you are looking for a fun back-to-school craft to do with your student try out these loose-leaf paper T-Shirts.

You will need:

A white T-shirt

A Red Sharpie Marker

A Blue Sharpie Marker

A Ruler


1. Pre-wash and dry your shirt

2. Lay-out the shirt flat and place the cardboard between the front and the back

3. Start making blue lines across the shirt using the ruler as a guide. Start from the sleeve and go until you reach the bottom.

4. Then use the red sharpie to make a vertical line from the collar to the bottom seam.

5. Then if you want you can write fun messages on the shirt or just leave it plain.
