ATLANTA -- As the first group of local students returns to class Thursday, Huntington Learning Center is giving parents six back-to-school tips.
First, the center suggests getting kids to set goals. They should reflect on last school year and talk about what they would like to accomplish this year. It's a good time to talk about what they're excited about and also what worries them.
Second, Huntington says the desk and home should be organized. For example, create designated study areas and have all the resources students need, including a family calendar. When kids come home, a spot for backpacks, shoes and jackets is also ideal.
