Tips for starting at a new school

5 Tips for Surviving the First Week at a New School

  1. Be prepared for mood swings and anxiousness.  Kids may be withdrawn, more sensitive, not doing as well in school or being uncooperative. This will pass as they settle in.
  2. Stick to your routine. Knowing what’s expected at home can provide a soothing anchor.
  3. Find a reason to socialize. Throw a “new in town”party or invite a few kids over for a play date. Socializing on home turf is often easier for kids. Hosting a party is a great way to ingratiate oneself with a group whereas socializing one-on-one can be less intimidating.
  4. Get involved with the school. If you’re able to volunteer in the classroom, you’ll get to know the teacher and your child’s classmates firsthand. Make an effort to network with other parents as well.
  5. Be patient. It is expected that the first few weeks will be full of changes for your child. If, after six months, a child is still really struggling that might cause me concern.  In that instance, talk to your child’s teacher and the school counselor – but remind yourself that your child will likely adjust just fine.
