Back to School in Asheville  

If you have kids, you have already felt the excitement surrounding the first day of school. Today, many Ashevillearea students are returning to the. While you have already done your backtoschool shopping and preparation, there are certainly things that help busy families throughout the school year. Here’s your survival guide.  

Healthy Balanced Lunch Ideas 

From elementary school through high school, every parent knows that a healthy and well-balanced lunch is a cornerstone to a good day. Your kids’ tastes will change over the years, so it’s important that you know how to put together a healthpacked lunch every day. Some ideas include:  

  • Wrapped sandwiches 
  • Hummus and pita 
  • Fresh fruit 
  • Hard boiled eggs 
  • Veggies 
  • Guacamole 

For older kids, encourage them to pack their own lunches. Be sure to stock healthy foods for them to choose from in your pantry and fridge.  

Managing Busy Schedules  

At all ages, kids today are active in a number of extracurricular activities. And if you have more than one kid, you’ll need to balance these schedules, along with your own commitments, in your calendar 

There are a few tips that can help you keep things organized.  

  • Write it down 
  • Use an app 
  • Be prepared 
  • Coordinate with other parents  

These things can help keep you stress-free as you bounce from one activity to another.  

Homework Plans 

Once kids are back in school, they’ll also have to deal with homework. Though the amount of homework may shift as your kids move up through the grades, it’s always present. Some kids love to do their homework while others act like they’re being tortured. When encouraging your kids study, work with their own strengths and find ways to help them learn better at home and at school. 

While nightly fights are common, they’re not always effective to get your kids to do their homework. Instead, take a step back and try a new approach. It’s okay for you and your kids to take a break if things become frustrating.  

It may help to create structure around homework. Establish a homework schedule, create a workspace just for homework, and take away any distractions.  

You should also allow your kids to make their own choices, but let them know that there may be consequences to their actions. When you have to, intervene without being controlling or overbearing.  

If your child is struggling, look into the resources Asheville has to help children who may have learning difficulties. For instance, check out the Homework Diners. Or for children with learning disabilities, see what’s available through FIRST 

Most of all, let you kids know that you believe in them. While grades are important, the feeling of being loved and accepted for who they are is more formative.

If you’re looking to move into the Asheville area, it may be helpful to take a look at the local school districts. This list shows the best school districts in the surrounding area. There are also several private schools that may be a fit for you and your family, including the nationallyrecognized Rainbow Community School right here in West Asheville.
