Help Inspire Excitement 

Some students fight feelings of anxiety before school, especially on Sunday evenings as they return to a full week of classes and extracurricular activities. Whether or not this describes your student, finding ways to get them excited about their upcoming school week can ease their worries. 

Remind them of upcoming events, activities, sports competitions, or even family outings. 

Stick with a Sleep Rhythm

A regular sleep schedule goes a long way in preparing a student for a successful time at school. “Sticking with a sleep rhythm” means having your child go to bed at the same time each night and waking up at the same time each morning. 

Another way to help your child sleep well is to limit their technology use and light exposure, as significant time on devices or watching TV right before bed can make it harder for them to fall asleep easily.
