Being Consistent with Your School Paperwork

Getting Organized:
In Your Home and Homeschool

Dear Friends,

Today is Plan and Play Day! I want you to check on your paperwork. Do you have your school records for the year up to date? Do you have a high school student who needs to look into colleges or testing?

Sometimes, you put things on our list to do, and these things just languish because you don’t want to do them. You put them off. If you have a high school junior or senior, you need to check their records.
They will need a transcript even if they go to a community college. If they want to apply for scholarships, they will need information from you.

Even if you do not have high schoolers, you still have school paperwork of some sort to keep up with. You need to have a regular time in your weekly schedule to purge and file school papers. Update any records you are required to keep. It is a lot easier to do your school paperwork a little at a time versus doing it at the end of the school year.

This is a good time of year to evaluate how your children are doing with their curriculum. You may have a student who is going through books faster than you anticipate, and you will need to have the next book or level ready for them after the Christmas break. You may have a student who is struggling with a subject, and you need to order some supplemental books for them.

If your state requires end of year or standardized testing, start checking dates and get it scheduled. Each state has different requirements, so I am just making some suggestions for common things that many of us have to do.

Working on your paperwork now will get it off your To Do list before your Christmas break. You will be ready to start fresh after the first of the New Year.

Looking at my children’s books and paperwork shows their strengths, and it shows where I want to make sure we hit some subjects a little more in depth after the New Year.

Your Zone Mission today is to declutter items you don’t need from one kitchen cabinet.

Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.

My menu plan for Tuesday is chicken, rice, vegetables, and salad.

Have a blessed day!
