Kids with backpacks

Has your family settled into the back to school groove, yet? 

It’s a rhythm that’s different for everyone:  some children started school for the first time, others are making new friends in new classrooms in new cities, even parents are figuring out a new routine with drop offs and pick ups for their household.

Whatever your family’s scenario may be, here are some tips to help parents and kids stay organized this year.

One of the questions in our successful #MyBTSHack contest was “What’s your favourite trick for keeping your family organized when school starts?”

From family calendars to family command centres – we’ve got you covered, thanks to the great hacks we received from parents all across Canada!
