It's Back to School Time!

Back to School Time!

The weather already seems to be cooling down, and back-to-school supplies are all over stores around Rochester. Activity in the real estate world slows a bit as home buyers with school-age kids are getting ready for classes. Home buying will start up again in a few weeks or so, but right now people are cramming in fun before the end of summer. 

Here's a list of some back-to-school tips that might help the whole family to get back into the swing of the school year:

  • Involve your kids in programs that they can do after school to keep them active. Think about SACC or the YMCA. 

  • Try apps like iHomework or MyHomeWork to help your kids organize assignments.

  • Create a family calendar that tracks everyone’s activities and commitments.

  • Teach your children to prioritize their assignments by making to-do lists with deadlines.

  • Remove distractions like TVs and video game consoles from homework areas.

  • Set — and enforce — regular weekday and weekend bedtimes and wake-up calls.

  • Create a list of fun after-school activities and games to keep your children entertained.

  • Create an area for kids to leave things that need your attention, like permission slips.

If you do happen to be out and about shopping around for homes at this time and you have kids still in school, the Rochester Realty Edge Team's website (and app for your smartphone) shows schools and the district number when you are searching for homes. Try it now here: Realty Edge Team.
